Respond for Results! Part 2
How you can help your students GET the jobs they want
Through the Clearinghouse’s long-time experience verifying academic credentials, we’ve gained insight into the background screening process your students encounter when they apply for jobs. Most degree and attendance verifications processed through our DegreeVerify service are requested by background screening companies and prospective employers for the purpose of validating and hiring the best qualified candidates.
But did you know that the Clearinghouse’s ability to verify education as quickly as possible improves the chances that your students will get offers for the jobs they really want?
Verifying degree and attendance information for your students within three business days gives your alumni a competitive edge over other candidates, whose credentials may not have been so easily verified.
That’s right. Based on many years of feedback from requestors, we’ve learned that students whose education verification process is delayed often give up waiting for an offer for the job they want and instead settle for accepting an offer from their “back up” job prospect. Verifying degree and attendance information for your students within three business days gives your alumni a competitive edge over other candidates, whose credentials may not have been so easily verified. Timely verification can also save your students from the stress of an extended job search.
What can you do?
- Provide degree records for all of your recent graduates at the end of every conferral period.
- Respond to pending alumni verification requests within three business days.
Taking these two steps helps ensure that your students do not experience delays in the background screening process. More importantly, it enables you to help your students secure the job of their dreams!
