How can you prove that candidates are who they say they are?

Hire the right person — the first time.

Effective talent acquisition is a complex process involving a number of steps focused on one objective — hiring the right people who will outperform for your organization.

But be on guard. The counterfeit candidate’s mission is single-minded — to secure a job offer. Counterfeit candidates look good on paper, interview well, and go to great lengths to be a part of your organization, whether they have the required skills, knowledge, and behaviours or not.

Spend time improving your resumé screening and interview process and be sure to conduct thorough background and reference checks.
