“Did you know that an innocent mistake can make it impossible for a company to hire a candidate? And here’s another shocker. The most common source of such mistakes is...the candidate!” says Omar Barraza.

There are vast resources available to help organizations with their background checks, but tools for job seekers, applicants, candidates, and employees remain scarce. Today, that begins to change with the launch of BackgroundCheckSurvival.INFO, an online resource that helps people avoid and overcome unnecessary problems during their background check so they can get their next job--or their first.
"Did you know that an innocent mistake can make it impossible for a company to hire a candidate? And here's another shocker. The most common source of such mistakes is...the candidate!" says Omar Barraza. "Background checks are surprisingly complicated and filled with risk for the organization and their candidates, and yet they happen thousands of times a day. Even during the Great Recession."
Job seekers will probably need to survive a background check to get their next job. So whether they are looking for a job now, or wondering if you might need to begin soon, it's a good idea for them to get ready before their next background check. Background Check Survival is filled with helpful information such as:
> Details on eleven traditional and special checks.
> An overview of the six-step background check process.
> The causes and solutions of four common problems.
> Five important tips for surviving a background check.
In the electronic book edition of Background Check Survival: Get Your Next Job, Omar Barraza shares a personal story with his readers:
"I recently spoke with a remarkable person. Let's call him Adam, though that's not his actual name. He is the best person that I've worked with so far at what he does. He shared with me that he's interviewed several times over many months, but hasn't been selected as a candidate--yet. It takes my breath away to hear this because if Adam is struggling to find his next job, things are probably worse than I imagine."
The free online resources at the http://www.BackgroundCheckSurvival.INFO website can help organizations to assist their candidates with better understanding the background checking process. As a result, the candidates can avoid common mistakes that could jeopardize their chances of being hired. Special and custom versions of the Background Check Survival books are available for business, commercial, promotional, educational, non-profit, and other uses. More information about special and custom editions is available by contacting the author.
For a limited time, the Background Check Survival electronic book is available for download at no charge when the discount code LAUNCH is used at checkout. This special offer is limited to the first 1,000 downloads and expires June 30, 2010, at midnight Pacific Standard Time.
