When you are looking to hire for a new position, it can be an exciting time for both the hiring team and the candidate. Hiring teams must go through many applicants to pick which ones they would like to bring in for an interview. When it comes to the hiring process, you must find the best candidate to fit your needs, and education requirements are likely a part of this.

Ensuring an applicant is providing accurate information around their educational experience is a must. You want to hire an applicant that has gone through the required schooling and not one who stretches the truth. That’s why verifying information on applications is essential to have in your hiring process.

Education Verification searches with One Source help confirm an applicant received the education they said they did. Our search verifies:

  • The School
  • Dates Attended
  • Degree
  • Date Obtained
  • GPA (where available)

With a quick search on the internet, you can find an online school that will offer a Bachelors’, Master’s, and even a Doctorate for a few hundred dollars. The school might not require any homework, testing, or prior education. Without an education verification, you might choose this candidate over another more qualified candidate that went through many years of schooling at the local educational institute.

Additionally, our education verification also includes a search of diploma mills. Diploma mills are online non-accredited schools that offer a diploma or certificate for purchase without completing the course work. One Source can catch unverified educational experience on job applications before the interview process. One Source offers Education Verification as an A La Carte option to add to your background screening solution. To learn more, contact us today!
