TransparentMe Service Helps Job Candidates Perform Their Own Criminal Background Checks
(February 17, 2010) - With the release of TransparentMe (http://www.transparentme.com/), job-seekers can discover any skeletons in their closet before a potential employer does.
The public records provider allows candidates to perform an online criminal background check on themselves in a matter of days or even minutes — revealing any negative information that could keep them from landing their next job. With identity theft on the rise, the service can also serve as an alarm that one's identity has been compromised.
"In today's hyper-competitive job market, a background check can make the difference between landing a dream job or being cast aside in favor of someone else," said Jason B. Morris, co-founder and principal. "TransparentMe equips a job seeker with information so they can be proactive with a potential employer instead of defensive."
"More companies than ever are conducting background checks on their job candidates — as many as 85 percent of all employers," said Nick Fishman, co-founder and principal. "Also, identity theft is forcing candidates to find out the hard way that their character and personal information has been tainted. TransparentMe arms people with knowledge so they can avoid unpleasant surprises that might impact their future career."
The service is offered in three package levels: Basic ($19.95), Enhanced ($34.95), and Comprehensive ($69.95). All levels provide the following three services:
– National Criminal Records Database Search — A search of databases that comprise millions of records from various sources in the United States. These records are obtained by commercial vendors from several different sources including: County Court Houses, State Departments of Incarcerations, State Record Repositories, Probation Departments and Townships.
– National Sex Offender Registry Search — This multi-state database search provides sex offender case information in an easy-to-read report. Extensive search capabilities will check registered sex offender data sources nationwide, including: Bureaus of Investigation, Departments of Law Enforcement, Departments of Corrections, Departments of Justice, Departments of Public Safety, Sheriff's Departments, State Attorney General's Offices and state police agencies in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
– Homeland Security Search: This security check cross-references the user's name against more than 14 worldwide known terrorist and fugitive databases that include individuals, organizations and companies considered a threat to global and national security. The Homeland Security Check database is updated daily as various lists are modified.
TransparentMe is a public records provider that allows job candidates to gain a competitive edge in finding the perfect job, through self-administered background checks. Our approach is simple: provide clients with the peace of mind that there won't be any surprises when prospective employers conduct their own due diligence.
