There are various reasons why candidates lie on their resume to get a job. Either the candidate doesn’t have the qualification or want to sensationalize their job experience to match the requirements.
As a recruiter, most of us don’t do a background check of shortlisted candidates.
the process takes too long; calling the 2 or 3 references would be enough to satisfy the client.
The main role of a recruiter is to close the deal as soon as possible and get paid. They believe doing a background check, the candidate may no longer be interested in the job while the checks are being conducted. The bottom line is placing the candidate’s and hopefully, he/she will stay on the job for the guarantee period of 3 months.
Most of the references are usually the candidate’s good friends/ colleagues who will give a good reference.
One of our services is contacting others within the current (if the candidate no longer works for the company) or a previous company where the candidate worked, this option gives the client more information on the candidate.
The cost of a background check is much cheaper than a Recruiter placement fee. Therefore, background checks are highly recommended for all positions.
