学历验证——雇主如何避免“灾难”

让我们面对现实吧——候选人简历上最常见的伪造方面之一是他们的教育。

由于许多雇主需要与工作相关的学位或专业,许多候选人可能会延长他们的教育经历,希望潜在的雇主不会检查差异。

例如,拥有英语文学学士学位的候选人可能会在医疗保健职位的工作申请中列出生物学理学硕士学位。

2015 年 观火就业筛选基准报告中接受调查的雇主中,压倒性的 86%表示筛选暴露了候选人在简历上撒谎。

许多雇主还表示,他们从背景筛选候选人中获得的最大好处是提高了他们的雇员质量。

一个背景审查供应商可以帮助您获得通过验证的学校,专业的方案,并取得学位,他们自己的应用程序上市知道你的候选人。

如果候选人尚未毕业并已声明,背景筛选公司仍应能够验证专业(如果适用)和出席日期。

一些教育机构在发布任何信息之前可能需要候选人的同意。

潜在雇主可以通过教育验证来验证以下项目

  • 候选人的学位/文凭/证书

  • 毕业或完成日期

  • 学位专业

  • 官方教育认证机构

文凭工厂

一些候选人可能对颁发“学位”的机构并不完全真实。有些人可能从通常被称为文凭工厂的公司购买了“学位”或“文凭”。

这些公司似乎是一所高等教育机构,但未经认证并提供收费的非法学位。文凭工厂通常会以与知名大学类似的方式命名,这是故意误导雇主。

这些公司几乎不需要工作(除了付款)即可收到声称是学位或文凭的文件。

因为这些文凭工厂宣传人们如何通过“生活经验”而不是课程学分获得学位,绝望的候选人可能会转向文凭工厂以满足雇主的工作要求。

但是,信誉良好的背景审查公司应该能够发现这些不值得在纸上打印的非法学位。

候选人获得“学位”有多容易?2004 年,一只名叫Colby Nolan的猫被德克萨斯州普莱诺的一所“大学”授予了行政工商管理硕士学位。

这所“大学”授予猫科尔比一份看起来很正式的文凭,包括大学校长和院长的签名。Colby 只需点击几下鼠标就“获得”了他的学位。

雇主应该警惕,仅仅因为候选人拥有看起来像文凭的东西,并不意味着该人拥有与之相关的实际培训或专业知识。

文凭工厂无处不在,而且千变万化。几乎不可能保留一份完整的已公布的活跃文凭工厂名单——这是一个不断扩大的名单,因此雇主可能会发现可靠的背景审查提供商的专业知识在审查候选人的学位时非常有帮助。

为什么这很重要?

检查真正的资格对于做出明智的招聘决定至关重要。

让背景筛选提供者验证您的候选人的教育可以减轻寻找候选人所谓的学校教育与您的职位要求之间的匹配的压力,从而使您能够专注于招聘过程的其他重要方面

Since many employers require job-related degrees or majors, many candidates may stretch their educational history in the hopes that potential employers won’t check for discrepancies.

For example, a candidate with a Bachelor of Arts in English might instead list a Master of Science in Biology on a job application for a healthcare position.

An overwhelming 86 percent of the employers surveyed in the 2015 HireRight Employment Screening Benchmark Report said that screening had exposed a candidate who lied on their resume.

Many of these employers also stated that the top benefit they received from background screening candidates was improving the quality of their hires.

A background screening provider can help you get to know your candidate by verifying the school, professional program and degree achieved that they listed on their application.

If the candidate has not yet graduated and has stated so, a background screening company should still be able to verify the major (if applicable) and dates of attendance.

Some educational institutions may need consent from the candidate before releasing any information.

Potential employers can validate the following items with an education verification:

  • Candidates’ degree/diploma/credential

  • Graduation or completion date

  • Major of degree

  • Official educational accrediting body

Diploma Mills

Some candidates may not be entirely truthful about the institution that issued their “degree.” Some may have bought “degrees” or “diplomas” from companies commonly known as diploma mills.

These companies appear to be a higher education institution but are unaccredited and offer illegitimate degrees for a fee. Diploma mills will often be named in a similar fashion to reputable universities, which is intentionally misleading to employers.

These companies require little to no work (other than payment) to receive a document purporting to be a degree or diploma.

Because these diploma mills advertise how people can earn degrees with “life experience” instead of class credits, desperate candidates may turn to diploma mills in an attempt to meet an employer’s job requirements.

However, a reputable background screening company should be able to uncover these illegitimate degrees that aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on.

Just how easy is it for a candidate to get a “degree”? In 2004, a cat named Colby Nolan was awarded an executive MBA from a “university” in Plano, Texas.

This “university” awarded Colby the cat with an official-looking diploma including the signatures of the university’s President and Dean. Colby “earned” his degree with just a few clicks of a mouse.

Employers should be wary that just because a candidate has something that looks like a diploma it doesn’t mean that person has the actual training or expertise that goes with it.

Diploma mills are ubiquitous and ever-changing. It is nearly impossible to maintain a complete published list of active diploma mills – it is an ever-expanding list so employers may find the expertise of a credible background screening provider very helpful when vetting a candidate’s degree.

Why Is This Important?

Checking genuine qualifications are crucial in making well informed hiring decisions.

Having a background screening provider verify your candidate’s education can take the stress out of finding a match between the candidate’s alleged schooling and your position’s requirements and thus allowing you to focus on other important aspects of the recruiting process.
