Companies are increasingly conducting background checks for their contingent workforce and freelancers. Therefore, before applying for a job it is recommended that you:
- Check your credit score which you can find at CreditKarma.com or at Equifax’ website
- Check your photos and posts on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and other social networks (although this information never gets deleted from these companies’ databases, you can delete it from your pages and profile so that perspective employers never see it.
- Check search results when your Google yourself
- Contact one of these companies that conduct background checks and maybe even do a background check on yourself.
Just like a free agent in sports, you are competing against other Freelancers for assignments, so it is good to make sure you have a clean record.
Background Checks (On-Demand Society)
Ensure you have a good reputation. Employers are checking online and offline. They are doing background checks, etc.
Checkr makes pre-employment background screening fast, legal, and ethical. We are compliant with state and federal employment laws. We offer free assistance and support if you have any questions about the screening process. Checkr uses modern encryption methods to both transfer and store user information. Data is always transferred using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and AES-256 bit encryption. Sensitive information like Social Security Numbers are stored encrypted at the database level.
We increasingly do more transactions with strangers, from buying and selling things online to carpooling. Traity aims to create a better world where we can trust one another as digital citizens. In order to do so, Traity measures people's trustworthiness through their behaviours and actions on the Internet, analysing people's public social profiles, such as Twitter, taking personality tests within Traity and studying reviews on sites like eBay, to create profiles where you show your reputation and credibility. It's not about creating one score for one person. We have different strengths and weaknesses and we are good at different things. Traity understands this diversity and looks at the people's personality strengths or Traits, so that we can find the right person for the right opportunity: for sales, finding a job, or for carpooling.
