Elements of Comprehensive Background Screening

Posted On 11:54 AM by Andrew Calvillo |

Employers and recruiters everywhere make it a point to only accept the very best individuals in their organizations. As such, background screening for recruitment is done very rigorously and extensively and may even take weeks. There are various techniques that companies may use and they may even work with an online screening service, but they more or less get the same details from applicants or recruits.

Educational attainment is one of the first things that employers ask for and this usually involves submitting copies of one's diploma, transcript of records, and other certifications. These documents can also be used to verify a person's basic personal information.

Furthermore, some organizations may require their applicants to take a drug test to determine the presence of illegal drugs in their system. Those who are taking prescription medicine must inform their recruiter as well as the one administering the test so that no mistakes will be made.


Criminal history checks are self-explanatory and a person's may accepted or denied based on his or her police records. These are regulated in the US by both state and federal laws, although there are some special cases wherein they're avoided altogether. Therefore, if you're planning to apply for a job, ensure that you inform your employer of any explanations that may not be present in a standard background check so that you can get a fair assessment.
