Educational qualifications comprise one of the most important deciding factors in the entire recruitment process. They also, often, form the basis of shortlisting the suitable candidates and lining them up for further assessments.
While in an ideal world, we would get absolutely authentic information from each applicant, in reality, things are quite erratic. Corporations to start-ups and small-time businesses all face this issue of candidates applying for posts – with fabricated educational and experiential records.
Besides being a major nuisance and a waste of time for HR personnel in the initial processes, this is a troublesome issue with possibly far-reaching hazards, as employers run a risk of hiring entirely unsuitable or even dangerous employees.
Although it may not always be possible to assess the veracity of details furnished by each job applicant, it becomes mandatory to screen these details at least for all applicants reaching the final stages of hiring – including technical and prominent posts that require extensive use of a cited qualification.
Besides companies, this service is also extremely useful for institutions of higher learning, looking to ensure the accuracy of educational details provided by students applying for niche study courses, higher learning programs like doctorate studies, scholarships and fellowships.
At Integritas, we work closely with candidates and institutions to ensure all the necessary verification processes are carried out to complete satisfaction. They may or may not involve the direct involvement of the candidate. Training programs are taken by a candidate and mentioned (and relevant) internships and certificate courses are also included in the checks. The whole process is carried out in tandem with the company’s/ institution’s personnel’s recommendations – as well as our personal expertise and experience in the field.
Educational verification processes aimed at authenticating candidates’ education claims – most of the times – involve getting in direct touch with universities, college registrars and administrative authorities of the cited educational institutions. This ensures that fake degrees, colleges, dates, and grades are unearthed. We directly contact the related agencies or educational institutions to check for the veracity of the supplied candidature information.
Before initiating the check, it is important to scrutinize the details available to be verified along with supportive documents to authenticate the details claimed including: mandatory details like college/university name, degree name, year of passing, registration number, SSN for US Education Check and NIN for UK Education Check and supportive documents like degree certificate / provisional degree certificate / consolidated mark sheet / all years mark sheets etc.
The mandatory check of client listed SLA needs to be followed & cross-verified for a particular profile depending on the project.
Get the verification done from the relevant college or university through verbal, written, email, post, fax, online verification methods or by making physically visiting the institution.
