Good Egg's Approach to Pre-Employment Verifications
Here's the sad truth: applicants DO lie. Plenty of surveys suggest that well over 50% of people lie on their resumes (and even more so for Millennials). Some of the biggest industry offenders? Financial, hospitality, IT, healthcare, and retail. That's why education and employment verification checks are still relevant (in addition to professional license verifications). But they tend to work best when bundled with other pre-employment screenings so you can get a complete and accurate picture of the candidate. Luckily at Good Egg, we can handle all of your background check needs—and more. Plus, we offer candidate text messaging, which makes it super easy to complete verifications.
Make sure you're hiring the most qualified candidate by confirming essential information—from academic and professional experience to personal reputation and licensure.

Frequently Asked Question about Verifications
I've heard that verifying a job candidate's education and employment references can slow down the background check process considerably. Is there a better way?
Luckily, when you work with Good Egg, there is a better way: candidate text messaging. With candidate text messaging, the whole background check process is kicked off with a "QUICK INVITE" sent via text. Our results show that background checks that are initiated via text complete 76% faster than email. It takes a candidate 14 hours to start the background check via text message as opposed to 31 hours via email.
Not only that, but the verifications process is much faster, too! By contacting references via text message, Good Egg has been able to decrease the time it takes to complete verifications by 13%.
