Diplomas and Education Verifications for Hiring

The hiring game is not for the faint of heart! Especially now that the number of job openings is higher than the number of people out there looking for work. “Full Employment,” which once seemed as unattainable as a unicorn, is now close to reality in many parts of the country.

Now, some employers say, not only can they not find the best candidates, they sometimes can’t find any. This could lead to acts of desperation - get warm bodies through the door any way you can.
