Mind the ‘Activity’ Gap

Some candidates will choose not disclose a period of negative employment on their CV by falsifying dates and assume that employers will never be contacted to verify periods of employment. Sterling’s Activity Verification service aims to combat this issue by integrating a variety of verification techniques to establish a timeline for the candidate, highlighting any prolonged gaps in their professional or academic history which may conceal an instance that your candidate would prefer you knew nothing about.
