What are they looking for when the government does background checks?


Answer by  Richard88 (391)

They start with the obvious: credit report and criminal records. They review the material you supplied on your form and interview your references, coworkers, and neighbors regarding your past behavior and whether they have observed anything that would tend to make them doubt your suitabilty for holding a position in which you were trusted with information important to national security.

Usually a background check is mostly done to uncover any possible criminal history, but depending on what type job you are applying for, may involve credit history, whether anything on your resume is fraudulent, personal problems, medical problems, family issues or anything else negative that might crop up later and cause problems.

The government will do a standard brackground check, they check the same things for every one who needs a background check. They look at things like have you ever been arrested? They need to see if you are a child molestor, or if you have been convicted for selling drugs.

When the governmetn does a background chechk they are usually looking if you have had any problems with the law, any arrests, dui, or possibly any problems with immigration, i'm not sure but i think they also lok into if you had filed for bankruptcy before and things like that.
