Personal Background Checks

Why run a personal background check?

Prevent Surprises

Knowing what others might find on your background check prevents unknowns from popping up on your personal information that you may not be aware of.

Impress Potential Employers

Post your results on a resume or share them during an interview to show that what you say and what they see is consistent because you’ve done your due diligence.

Provide Clarity

If something does show up on your personal background check, you’ll know exactly what it is, and can add notes to your results and provide clarity during an interview.

Correct Errors

Proactively find and dispute any errors on your background before someone else screens your information. Don’t wait until a potential employer or landlord discovers the mistake.
