Background Investigations and Their Effect On Your Students' Outcome Thursday, June 8, 11:30 am – 12:30 pm Brian Bodkin, careerandtalenthub.com Barbara Wyskowski Esq., careerandtalenthub.com

Students apply for multiple job opportunities but what goes on behind the scenes after the application is submitted? Students have little knowledge regarding what happens during the background investigation process and how it will affect their outcome. What students don't know will result in lost job opportunities. This presentation will provide career counseling professionals with substantive knowledge that will enable them to add value to their services. Placement of your students in a job in their field of study is a primary objective for post-secondary schools. Career counselors can help their students improve their prospects for employment if they understand what occurs during the background investigation process. 

Our presentation will include an applicant's rights during the background investigation process. A review of key rights applicants have during the application process will include the right to a copy of a background investigation that is conducted and the right to dispute any incorrect information in the report. Knowing your rights can mean the difference between a successful hire and failure. The background investigation process is a labor intensive and errors are often made by the background check vendor, former employers, schools and the criminal court system. These errors will result in lost job opportunities. We will discuss how students can mitigate these mistakes. 

Discussions will include how background investigation companies develop information, or in some cases, do not develop information that is beneficial to your students that can result in a lost opportunity. The presentation will demonstrate how students can cultivate references to enhance their resume and impress a recruiter.

Does a student have a criminal record or are they unsure about an incident that occurred in the past? The presentation will review how your students can determine if the record is reportable for employment purposes and how to mitigate an adverse record. We will review the ban the box controversy and what a background investigation company may find during the criminal record research process, and the proactive steps one can take if they have a criminal record. 

Attendees will learn how students can enhance their resume and get the recruiter's attention. We will review the proactive steps to engage employers, supervisors, teachers, instructors and others with whom they have interacted who can serve as positive and informative references during the background investigation process. Our presentation will review the primary reasons why individuals are denied employment and how to proactively take steps to correct these issues. The goal is to obtain a flawless background investigation for the prospective employer to review and get the job.
