Worrying about Background Checks

If you have been offered a great job with a great company, that kind of offer is attached to background check services. You have nothing to worry about if you don’t have any criminal records, but what if you didn’t list an employer where you only worked for six months. Do you have to worry? Is this something that can harm any job offers in the future?

Types of Background Checks

o-stressed-employee-facebookThere are usually two types of background check services. The first one is a reference check which is a check made by the employer or the human resources staff by calling the previous employers that you listed in your job application or résumé so that they can conform to the exact dates of employment and your salary. Your potential employer will ask your former supervisors and references about your weaknesses and strengths and your work performance.

The second type of background check services is more about your personally and less about your work history. These background check services are mostly done by firms and agencies hired by your potential employer. This includes information about your credit, criminal record history and it will be thoroughly checked depending on the level of the job being offered to you. If the job available is dealing with finance, your potential employer will likely conduct any kind of background check services to know if you have any crime that involves money or if you have a bad credit.

Workplace violence is also a concern for employers, as well as preventing sexual predators and child molesters who apply for jobs that deal with women, children and others who are vulnerable. If you were not accepted because of the information based on the background check services report, it is the employer’s duty to let you know, but you also have the right to correct any inaccuracy from the background check services report.

 Temporary Jobs Not Included In Background Check Services

If you omitted a small job that was temporary and it didn’t show up in your background check services or reference checks, make it clear to your potential employer that you omitted a reference to this, unless they changed your employment dates. If you call it as a temporary assignment, it is actually not a big deal and the chances are that you would have clarified all the information that needs clarification in your job application process.
