Background Check

Background check is an important component of the hiring process. Today, I share with you a Fox News video about background check for small business. It suggests that:
  • Depending on the jobs, employers may also need to check a candidate’s credit history, driving history, and criminal records in addition to personal and professional references.  
  • Employers need to have the candidate’s permission/consent before conducting a background check.  
  • Be fair and consistent to every candidate, and everyone is supposed to go through the same process.  
  • Be aware of identity theft: a candidate might be a victim of identity theft and hence is not responsible for a bad record.  
  • Inform a candidate’s the decision with specific reasons if s/he fails to pass the background check, allowing this candidate to clarify the information if applicable.  
  • It is fine to outsource background check, but make sure to find a reliable agent.  
In the end, this video brings up a topic of using social media and the Internet for background check. What do you think? What are the pros and cons of using social networking sites or the Internet for background check?
