Having an established and professional employment verification company verify employment by checking references to verify past employment is an accurate way to confirm that these job references will enhance your chances, rather than stand in your way of securing the employment position you desire.

1. There are some companies that prohibit the release of verify employment information other than the basic employment verification of title and dates of employment. Our verify employment job reference checking staff always applies pressure to every job reference that is checked, in an attempt to gain as much information as is possible. Even when a company follows a strict policy to only verify past employment by confirming dates and job title(s), other questions, especially the reason for separation and overall recommendation are always asked. Our job reference checking service fee is still applicable as our professional reference checking research and income employment verification services offer the knowledge of precisely what the company will divulge to a prospective employer. In addition, each professional reference checking report will address the manner in which this information was provided, including the tone in the reference's voice and timeliness of the contact (e.g. Did the reference return our verify employment calls or did we leave repeated messages that were never returned?).

2. A second job reference checking service exception exists when a job reference is being evasive. There are some job references that will not return our telephone calls to verify past employment and despite our staff's attempts, we are unable to pass a strong secretary or voice mail system and verify employment. Our professional employment verification services team always calls and/or leaves a minimum of four messages detailing the reason for our call. Should the job reference not return our verify employment calls, we feel that they are saying they do not care to provide job reference or or unwilling to verify past employment or provide income employment verification information on that job candidate. Of course, should we discover that a key job reference is traveling, ill, on vacation, or for some reason not available, we will notify our verify employment client of this and make further attempts to verify past employment as soon as the job reference is once again available. Job Candidates need to look at this professional employment verification research from the perspective of a potential employer. It is unlikely that a prospective employer will attempt to reach a job reference or verify employment more than two or three times. Therefore, the employment verification information our job reference checking service obtains, or the lack of a response, is still crucial information that a job candidate needs to take into account when making a transition.
