Traditionally, verifying the past employment of job applicants has been a time-consuming process for HR departments. Verified Resources is a startup that could change this by automating the entire process.
To begin, employees create an account and add their employment history. Next, they invite their employers to verify them. Then, when the employee applies for a new job, the prospective employer can simply search them on the database and view their verified employment history. Unlike LinkedIn, endorsements come from verified and credible past employers. The platform could prove particularly useful in countries such as India, Brazil, Indonesia, Philippines and East Europe, where there is an abundance of potential manpower.
Could a similar platform be used to verify college applications?
