What is a background check?

Employers conduct background checks, also known as pre-employment checks, to verify the identity and qualifications of job applicants. The scope of these checks varies depending on the requirements of the role. Background checks confirm the details of a candidate’s résumé, such as their employment history and education, and can also look into more private information like criminal history, driving records, and credit history.
