Don't Let Mistakes on Background Checks Prevent You from Getting a Job

by Tom Ahearn 4/7/2009 1:41:00 PM

In today’s economic climate, finding a job seems next to impossible.  The most recent unemployment numbers are truly staggering.  According to a Labor Department report:

  • There are more than 13 million officially unemployed people in the United States;
  • The unemployment rate has reached its highest figure in a quarter of a century;
  • Over five million jobs have been lost since the recession began in December 2007.

As if finding a job wasn’t tough enough, jobseekers competing with a large pool of qualified competitors must also deal with employers being extremely selective when hiring.  Now imagine overcoming these hurdles to be selected, only to stumble before crossing the finish line of employment because of a failed background check.  Even worse, what if the information from that check was inaccurate or out-of-date?

It's not their fault, right? Wrong! Jobseekers should expect to undergo a background check and they need to know EXACTLY what personal information will be revealed.

  • 9 out of 10 U.S. employers perform background checks before each hire!
  • An average total of 40-50 million background checks are done each year!

A new article on, "Is Your Background Check Costing You a Job?  The Five Most Common Mistakes and How to Correct Them," examines the most frequent causes of inaccurate personal information. If you are interested in discovering the most common mistakes in background checks that can keep jobs out of the hands of qualified applicants, as well as how jobseekers and consumers can take control of their personal information, please visit the home page to download the article FREE.
