KnowMyHire.com Featured In Tuscaloosa News

Tuscaloosa, AL - Lexcio client, KnowMyHire.com, has been featured in the Tuscaloosa News for its newly designed website and leading database technology in performing background checks. KnowMyHire.com offers full-service background checks for automotive suppliers, temporary employment agencies and other companies throughout the state.

With identity theft rampant, liability lawsuits commonplace and more illegal aliens entering the country and the work force -- checking the background of job applicants is not only becoming more prevalent among employers, but it’s simply a smart business practice.
 
KnowMyHire.com is one of 17 such companies in Alabama, and only one of two in West Alabama that belong to the National Association of Professional Background Screeners, a non-profit trade organization established in 2003, in part, in response to the growth of the screening industry.
 
According to Kathy McCulley, owner of KnowMyHire.com, “30 percent or more of the resumes we check at the request of our clients contain misleading information or misstatement of fact.” Other sources report even higher numbers.  Steven D. Levitt, coauthor of Freakonomics and a renowned economics professor at the University of Chicago, cites research suggesting that more than 50 percent of people lie on their resumes.
 
Most resume deception is a “white lie” to cover up a few months of unemployment, while others can be complete fraud.  The more severe list of potential lies includes embellished job titles, inflated diplomas and fictional employment history.
 
After a thorough check, the company turns over its findings to the client, and offers advice, but does not recommend whether to hire someone.
 
KnowMyHire.com expects the newly designed site and database features to accommodate the needs of its customers that choose its services to help protect against negligent hiring practices.
