Fake Degree Certificate Discovered by Verifile

This week we have identified a fake degree certificate. A candidate going to work for one of our banking clients claimed to have a degree. We sent the certificate to the university which confirmed that the certificate itself was fake and that they had no records of the candidate having ever completed a degree at their university. Interestingly the same candidate also claimed to have a salary almost double what they actually had in a previous employment.

73% of Employers Check Job Applicants' Social Media Profiles Before Offering Roles, Why Didn't Kent Police & Crime Commissioner, for Paris Brown?

"Online recruitment agency, RecruitmentRevolution.com, has commented on the resignation and current police investigation of Paris Brown, the seventeen-year-old Kent Police Youth Crime Commissioner who resigned after media reports that she had made ""racist and homophobic"" comments on her personal Twitter account. Kent Police & Crime Commissioner, Ann Barnes, had a duty of care to investigate the social media profile of Brown prior to offering her the role of Youth Police Crime Commissioner,"" said Anna Taylor, Co-founder and director or RecruitmentRevolution.com. ""Had Barnes checked the social media profiles of the candidates, it is unlikely that Brown would have been placed in this position,"" said Taylor. A survey of 1,700 UK employers, undertaken by RecruitmentRevolution.com, found that almost three quarters of employers regularly check the social media pages and profiles of potential employees before offering them roles. Only 27% of employers surveyed do not check Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media sites for information on job candidates. ""We need to educate our young people that whatever they post on social media is on public record, can be easily discovered online and can come back to haunt them,"" concluded Taylor."
