Dongguk University filed a huge suit against Yale, but the courts sided against them, citing that there was no malicious intent in the oversight. This one person incident has proven expensive for the Korean school, losing millions that would have been used for expansion. More importantly, the administration experienced extreme embarrassment and lost prestige in front of its clients, the students. It's not just professors who have been found to falsify documents. Just last year, Scott Thompson stepped down as Yahoo's CEO when it was discovered that he did not hold the computer science degree that his resume bore, showing that even top executives should probably undergo careful employment background screening too.

Hiring Process: Employers are Pickier than Ever

Posted On 12:59 PM by Andrew Calvillo | 0 comments

As any job seeker knows, the hiring process often takes several weeks from the initial interview to the job offer. While you may be anxious to find out if you've landed your dream job or not, the sheer number of applicants for any position means that human resources have a lot of screening to do before deciding to hire anyone. Indeed, despite the recovering economy, companies are afraid to waste money by hiring the wrong person for the job.

According to, which collects hiring information from different companies, the interview process at major companies like Starbucks and Southwest Airlines have nearly doubled compared to 2010. With the surplus of people hoping to land a job, companies are willing to play the waiting game until the perfect candidate shows up. Since a company will spend a considerable amount of money on a new hire's training, remuneration, benefits, and bonuses, whoever they finally hire must really be worth the expense.

One measure that employers use to prevent hiring mistakes is employee background screening. Through it, they can double check claims like education or work history to make sure that an applicant is who he claims to be. With pre-employment screening methods, dishonest or incompetent candidates—who will ultimately damage the company—are weeded out.

Public Records: Two-Way Streets to Transparency

Posted On 2:58 PM by Andrew Calvillo | 0 comments

You might not be comfortable with the idea that documents about your party affiliation, criminal history, and property ownership are publicly available. You're probably thinking that there's too much of your personal information just floating around for anyone to see and use. However, the truth is, public records are a great way to ensure transparency in the country.

Basically, any entity that uses taxpayer money to fund its operation (like local governments, police districts, and schools) is obligated by law to make most of their documents available to citizens, provided that the request to inspect such documents follow the required process. Requiring government or public offices to share certain records ensures accountability on their part—that is, that they're not using your hard-earned money on shady dealings. It also allows people to see if an institution is efficient in managing its finances.

For example, a government institution—say your local high school—receives a budget for the year. It can spend this money on any number of things, such as building new classrooms or renovating the cafeteria. Whatever it decides to do, the expense report has to be publicly available so parents know if the school is wisely using the money or squandering it for unnecessary expenses.

As you can see, there's no need to think of public documents as a threat to privacy. A better way to look at them are as “two-way streets to transparency”.

hiring them, this is actually quite difficult to do in practice. In fact, many organizations don't act upon some of the information they get directly from their prospective employees, according to Security Management. There is a greater call to use other sources, like social media, to find out more about an applicant, but this practice can be controversial. Some firms, fortunately, like the Accu-Facts Company, can offer organizations the next best thing. Via a thorough public records search, they can gather useful information that can't be obtained otherwise from preliminary tests and interviews. This service also extends to individuals who wish to have themselves “professionally screened” for future employment and have a professionally-made personal background report made for them.
