Employment Background Verification Check

Reviewing a candidate’s previous experience, performance, and credentials while carrying out a gap analysis enables you to determine whether or not they have a genuine interest in the position you are hiring for.

An employment gap in your work history may be a sign that you just lost your job or were unemployed while looking for work. It will explain why the unaccounted-for time occurred and assist you in making more accurate employment selections.

Included in your Gap Check Report

  • Recent job losses
  • Gaps of unemployment between jobs

Frequently Asked Questions

An employment gap is essentially a period of time between jobs that is unaccounted for. Most of the time, it’s very usual for people to have brief gaps in their professional careers; this is especially true if they change professions or decide to go in a different career route.

For the vast majority of businesses, a brief absence between lengthier periods of work is typically not seen as much of a cause for concern. We are all human, after all. Anything more than a few months is typically considered to be more of an issue that requires investigation. However, if it has been more than a year, this is usually cause for alarm.

A gap analysis is the technique of figuring out where in a candidate’s job history there are gaps by making sure all the dates they provide are correct. While brief gaps between roles are typical and often not cause for concern, anything more than a few months should be emphasised, and anything longer than a year is cause for further inquiry.

You have every right to be wary of a candidate if they had a lengthy period of unemployment between jobs; after all, you have to question what they were up to during that period of time while they weren’t working.

You should look for applicants that have a good attitude, know how to make effective use of their time, and can describe the things they accomplished over the relevant time period. If they have nothing to show for this time period, it may give you a negative view of their work ethic and their personal motivation in general.

However, gaps in employment histories might be troublesome if they are caused by a criminal record or an employment situation in which something went wrong and led to termination. A gap in employment may, of course, be wholly unintentional and entail professional pauses for a variety of personal reasons, such as time away to travel, maternity leave, or health issues. During the course of your recruiting process, it is crucial to verify this information.

Each employee you hire for your company must be qualified for the position. By evaluating the candidate’s past experience, performance, and credentials, you may do a gap analysis to make sure they are sincere about the position.

Longer gaps may also prompt the query, “Why isn’t this individual getting hired?” It could draw attention to issues with a former employment or a criminal record. A gap analysis will provide you with additional details about what took place at this period and enable you to make a more educated choice. Most significantly, the process of our inspections will also improve the accuracy of the information you get from applicants.
