Qualifications

by Debbie

I have a background that is not a good background. My question: Are background checks done? If so, what are they looking for?


Is it up to the hiring employer? I really do not want to spend time and/or money on this if I am not qualified. As it is right now, I am not able to work in healthcare because of my background. Although it is an old charge, it is still being held against me.

Response:
The short answer is it's really up to the employer.

Larger employers like hospitals or large practices or clinics are more likely to perform background checks.

Just like in any other field, the smaller employers such as small medical practices or billing services are less likely to perform background checks. However they may ask for references for previous jobs or work.
