The Importance of Background Checks

Do you have something in your past that is embarrassing, like being arrested for protesting for an social cause during your college years? Ever fail to pay a series of speeding tickets in a state in which you no longer reside? Think no one will ever find out about these things? Think again.

In the digital age, secrets are no longer safe, especially from potential employers. Vetting someone you just met is not only a smart thing to do Ė itís becoming more common every day.

There are two kinds of background checks most commonly being used today: a general background check and a criminal background check. A general background check is comprehensive and reveals information such as birth, marriage and divorce records, as well as a history of every residence a person has ever had. It also can contain such information as whether a person has ever filed for bankruptcy. General background checks also include a conviction record. Because of their complexity, a general background check often is expense to conduct.

A criminal background check focuses solely on a personís criminal convictions. In some states, arrests are not permitted to be included on a personís criminal history. Only if a person has actually been convicted of a crime will it be included in the history.

While using third-party background checking agencies is common, many people today also are simply Googling a person's name to see what they may find. For this reason, social media such as Twitter and Facebook could end up costing you a good relationship if youíre not careful about what you post. Even if you feel secure in knowing your background is squeaky clean, be careful what you tweet and post, because it, too, can come back to haunt you.
