Background Checks Cause Problems For Employment

It does happen:

You go in for a job interview. You feel like you nailed it. Then you get the call (if you’re lucky) letting you know that your background check showed something shocking. They don’t know what to believe, they go with someone else. Then you get to start on that horrendous journey of clearing your name.

And this is all best case scenario. More often than not you do not get the call. Human resource professionals are going to believe what they see on this “official” background check. They are more than likely never going to contact you again after seeing that document. You go on knowing nothing about what is being reported on you Criminal Background Check, having no opportunity to explain yourself or begin fixing it. As I have said before in previous posts, it took me 6 years to find out, a few more to correct the problem by getting an expuncture, and a few years later I just turned up “dirty” on another background check.

Identity Theft of this nature is no joke, and it just blind-sides you. You can’t find out through your bank account or credit score. You are more than likely not going to run a Criminal Background Check on yourself. People that do know are probably not going to tell you, but they will probably tell others. In my case there was nothing that I could have done to prevent it, but in most cases it can be prevented. For great prevention tips click here

Because of my own experience, I am happy to endorse LifeLock. In turn, LifeLock has allowed me to offer a 10% discount to anyone that I refer to them.
