obtain said info), it is critical to know if the person being hired in has financial issues. We've read too many times lately where employees have embezzled money to pay off such and such, and sometimes these things can be avoided, by a thorough screening of a new employee. All that being said, it does not mean that anyone who has missed a mortgage payment is going to steal. Employers are looking for patterns, or sudden changes, or gaps (signaling a bigger problem, maybe?). As long as there is a criteria for selecting candidates, and that criteria is the SAME for everyone, there shouldn't be a problem.…
dered how serious it would be to lose my purse, my phone, my eyeglasses, my planner, my credit cards, my ATM card, my driver's license, my flip camera, my only hairbrush UNTIL they were gone, inaccessible, lost - I thought for good.
I panicked as I thought about the travel I was supposed to do this week, how would they let me board the plane without my driver's license? Luckily, I remembered I had a passport that would work, I hoped. How would I travel without my credit card or ATM card? I supposed I would just have to actually walk into a bank (haven't done that for at least a year) and withdraw some cash to take with me. How would I possibly be able to track my email accounts without my smart phone? I had just upgraded my phone, so I still had my old phone - somewhere. I would just have to find it and re-activate it.
The fact that my life was so wrapped up in a soft leather bag astounded me. I couldn't focus, I was consistently on the verge of tears, I felt like a failure, I was depressed, I wasn't hungry, and - worst of all - I couldn't write. I know, it's crazy -- but when I thought about the work this misplacement would cost me, I wanted to crawl into a hole. How was I so careless...
Luckily, the purse and the entirety of its contents were found. And my world had been righted, once again. My mind was at ease. I was able to concentrate on my work. I could write that press release that had been looming. I could confirm my travel, print my tickets, make some notes and pack. I could sleep - for I had not the night before...
Back-up plans? I didn't have any. Should I prepare for this type of thing - how would that be accomplished? Have double of everything? Have a second and third AirForceOne? (which is what I will now call my purse) The relief I felt when I saw my purse was incredible. And all was good.
propose to conduct background checks, most for "free". I randomly went to 12 different sites and, believe me, this is not how a responsible recruiter gets accurate background information on a candidate, nor is it the safest route to take. Why?
All of the sites I visited wanted my credit card information, expiration date, and other personal information to either get the "free trial period" or to see the results of the "search". Clearly you do not want to submit this valuable information to just anyone on the internet...this is how identity theft occurs. Once you hit the send key, it is to late.
These sites probably are not Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) or Drivers Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) compliant, forget HIPPA laws.
After submitting your payment information, you have to ask yourself if all state records are represented. Not all states have sunshine laws of the equivalent.
How old in the information?
What is the solution to protecting your personal and banking information AND getting current and compliant facts on the applicant? Hire a licensed private investigator who specializes in pre-employment screening. Licensed private investigators are held, by the laws of their states, to a much higher standard than those who do background checks without a license. Our agencies are consumer reporting agencies thus we are fully compliant with all federal and state laws. We only use private databases that are compliant as well. The major reason is, ALL of your information is strictly protected, as is that of the applicant. You and your investigator should have a payment plan in place that suits your needs. You deal with the investigator, no putting your credit card and other valuable information on the Internet for anyone to copy.

ight now. She jumped down and ran into the other room, only to bring back my wallet. Here Mommy, now you have enough money to build houses.
I think that is about all I learned in Econ 101 in college about money. I am just glad she didn't pull out a credit card, I was saving that lesson for kindergarten.

enter the deposit on your program you code it as fees received then split the detail just as you would when you pay a credit card bill and split th accounts the expenses go to. At the end of the month you print out the deposit report which will give the total amount due each recruiter monthly. Your accountant can show you in about ten minutes how to do it.
Quicken or quickbooks are very user friendly. You enter deposits ,write payable checks click reports you want monthly and annually the program does the rest. The biggest mistake a small firm can make is to try and use sophisticated accounting programs when you don't need them.…

Hello, Thanks for the quick reply. The job is pretty straight forward. You will be answering the phone, scheduling meetings, and running company errands, but we really need someone to answer the phone. When running errands you will be provided with a company credit card. Due to bad experiences with this in the past, before we can send you an application, we need you to get a credit check. We prefer you use http://TheCreditCheckCompany.notlong.com to obtain this information. When you submit your information they will send you your credit check. When you email me your credit check I will send you your application. We have full and part time positions available. Send me your schedule and how many hours per week you plan on working. Looking forward to your response! Ryan Peterson Human Resources, Manager…
