Education Verification

Our background checks inform your hiring decisions so that you can hire with confidence and enjoy the benefits of bringing on skilled employees.

Education Verification & History

It’s a thrill to find that seemingly perfect candidate with all the right education credentials and qualifications. But how do you know that person has all the educational background and accomplishments they’ve documented on their resume? The Harvard Business Review reports that 81% of candidates lie about their qualifications at some point in the interview process.

Your business can’t afford to be led astray by false information — especially when it comes to a person’s education. That’s where education history verification comes in. VICTIG handles education verifications thoroughly and professionally so that busy HR professionals like you have one less routine, yet critical task to deal with. Our checks inform your hiring decisions so that you can hire with confidence and enjoy the benefits of bringing on a skilled employee.

Verify Education History and Credentials With VICTIG

When you outsource an education verification background check to a third party, you can trust the results to come back quickly and accurately, saving you time and stress. VICTIG’s comprehensive education verification team works directly with registrar’s offices and prevents details of a candidate’s educational background from slipping through the cracks. When you outsource administrative tasks like these, you’ll enjoy a faster turnaround time, allowing you to hire necessary help sooner.

Our screening solutions are designed to quickly and effortlessly verify that any given candidate has received the degree and major they claimed to have gotten from a high school, college, university, or other institution. We can also confirm dates of attendance, GPA, awards, honors, and licensing. We’ll raise red flags and expose discrepancies on the front end of the hiring process, to save you from making costly hiring mistakes.

Why Education Verification Is Important in the Hiring Process

Root Out Dishonest Candidates

Education verification services root out candidates who have lied about any aspect of their education — including their GPA, major, institution attended, degree completion, dates of attendance, and more — early in the process. Even if a person is qualified despite discrepancies on their resume, you don’t want to start a professional relationship on the foundation of little white lies. Problematic hires also pose a liability risk.

Hire Sooner

Education verifications can be a pain for hiring managers. You have lots of other administrative work to handle on a day-to-day basis, but VICTIG’s third-party verification services are dedicated to this task. We’ll verify education credentials quickly and in line with regulations so you can hire sooner, free up more time for HR functions, and breathe easier.

Simplify Verifications for Candidates

Our services make it easy and simple for candidates to provide all of their education information online for verification, giving them a seamless application experience and reducing wait times in the hiring process. With fast verification turnaround times, they will also find out faster whether or not they are moving to the next step in the hiring process.
