Does the Employer : Looking at your Resume :


Does he look at the resume , call you for an interview and THEN verify all information on the Resume is correct ?

Or is it : Receive resume , verify everything and then call you ?

Interview first. No point in going through the trouble of verifying accuracy before figuring out if they like you.

Receive CV, put in a call to friends and contacts at different firms for some unofficial verification, request interview, interview, then full verification.

There are a lot of companies who won't give information out, without HR as their mouth piece, so yes, most do call HR.

But that's another reason why networking is so important, within your industry. If you're an employer, you can get the goods on people. If you're seeking employment, a stellar reputation adds to your ability to get more jobs and also, your ability to negotiate an excellent salary.

It really depends on how your resume was submitted.

If you went through an internal contact, one who sent the resume to the hiring manager, then most likely your contact's reputation and level matters. HR is usually bought in for compliance, verification, and paper work.

If you went through normal channels, company website, HR usually goes through and separates those who are unqualified and submit the rest (or top 10) to the hiring manager.

If you know the hiring manager, then your interview first then HR comes in for compliance (there might be better candidates, seniority, internal candidates, etc...)

If you follow TBF's route of networking, then it would most likely be a mix of internal contact and hiring manager.

most employers will verify your info after they make an offer to you. there is no way they could verify everyone before interviewing them

When I was in HR getting my work badge at my old job I noticed ppl would call HR and verify if the employee did work there. The lady would say yes and I think she gave the hire dates as well.... What else can they give ? Reason for seperation ? Anything else ?

due to lawsuits and other reasons most companies (atleast the big companies) will only give your work dates and the name of your position...

I have seen salary range verification since some employees give out to much information. Some employers have automatic employment verification systems that also give out salary information. One code for employment and another code for employment dates, salary verification, title, etc...

Coming from an HR point of view, each company is different when it comes to separation reasons; some will not give separation reasons to semi-specific details (retired, better opportunities, education, fired with cause, budget cuts, etc...)

They verify the information on the resume after the interview has taken place.

I'm sorry you are having trouble, so am I. I don't have an issue getting interviews though, just getting hired!!!!!
