Education Verification

Posted on Posted in services

According to Monster.com, education is the #1 thing applicants lie about on a resume.

With estimates as high as 50% of applicants providing false information on resumes and applications, education verification protects your company and your company’s clients. You can avoid legal issues later by ensuring that an applicant truly graduated and obtained the degrees they describe on a resume.

An Employment Verification Report from Background Check Professionals will verify:

  • Degree and attendance of the applicant
  • Confirmation of the applicant’s highest level of education
  • Degree earned
  • Dates of attendance or graduation.

According to the Wall Street Journal, 34% of all application forms contain misrepresentations about the applicants’ experience, education, and ability to perform essential job functions. This includes half finished degrees, inflated degrees or “purchased” degrees which are not certified by any professional organization.

It isn’t just people applying for lower wage jobs who lie. Check out this list of infamous Resume Lies:

  • Ronald Zarrella, Bausch & Lomb chief executive officer falsely claimed an MBA from New York University’s Stern School of Business.
  • George O’Leary, ex-Notre Dame football coach claimed to have a master’s degree in education from New York University and to have played college football and earned three letters while doing so.
  • Marilee Jones, admissions dean for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) claimed to be a “scientist with degrees in biology from Rennselaar Polytechnic Institute and the Albany Medical College,” and to have her doctorate.
  • Dave Edmondson, chief executive of RadioShack falsified his resume by claiming to have a degree in psychology from Pacific Coast Baptist College in California (though the school doesn’t offer a psychology program).
