Background Check

When you apply for a job, many employers choose to perform a background check before finally deciding to hire you. A background check or background investigation is a way to find out a person's most common records, since many employers won't hire anyone with criminal records.

However through this pre-employment screening, they can also verify professional and educational records, so they can check how many jobs you've had through the years and decide whether you're a candidate who can stick with a job position for long periods of time.

It's not always the employer who performs the background check since there are special agencies that offer these services to companies.

This is one important reason why you shouldn't lie on your resume since, after all, they can and will find out the truth through this kind of process. Besides, all companies and employers will appreciate you being honest about everything on your professional and personal life.
