This is one of the most awful moments in anyone’s life. Sometimes they get the shock of their lives. Because coming from other sources, not themselves, they find out something about themselves that was buried away very deep in the old closet. The background screening process can be one of the most dreaded events in any one person’s life. Sometimes it even gets personal. And perhaps this has also been one of the frailties of human nature.
Avoiding what it bound to come out sooner or later. The afflicted person becomes just too afraid to look into his or her records of past history, whether it was recent or so long ago. He or she is bound to know whether he or she has defaulted. He or she is bound to know about past transgressions. Unless you are completely senile, how could you not know. But this is a personal matter and you can face it without anyone having to know.
Before you give yourself any shocks or surprises, do this rather. Go and give yourself a background screening. Don’t wait for someone else to do it. And what do they really know about you anyway? And even if the information they’re picking up is false, what do they really care. Because if they did, they’d hire you on the spot. Or they’d grant you that loan that’s going to help keep you and your family afloat during these uncertain pandemic times.
And by initiating the background check yourself you should be better placed to rectify those mistakes. Or were they really mistakes? Because there are those who deliberately or maliciously spread false information about you. Clear your conscience. Clear the decks. Never go backwards. And only go forwards.
