Hi Clubbers,

I would like to know whether Bschools ask for proof of employment history. If yes, what what do they ask?

I have lost my Income task Filling for my first Job. The only thing that I have are the Offer letter and reliving letter. Will those suffice?

Most of the B-Schools outsource the background check of employment and other details to a risk management firm, so I guess your offer letter and relieving letter should do good as anyways they do their own check once you accept their offer

What about EC checks? This seems like an area that is hard to verify. For example, I was a member of a club in college that doesn't exist anymore.

Good point, EC's are tough to verify if there not existing at all. Like I was part of the school computer science association in my under grad and the association does not exists anymore.

Can someone tell us how they go about verifying this aspect ?

Maybe we should ask one of the admission consultants.

Different schools have different criterias that they ask the firm (hired to do background check, such as Kroll) to check up on. Some schools are more thorough than others, even if school A and school B both hires the same background checking agency (i.e. - Kroll).

For example, one school might ask the agency to check most recent employment history only while another school might ask the agency to check every single employment listed on one's resume.

The background checks and verifications take place after you get accepted, and the company performing the check will gather any necessary proof (usually by contacting the company or EC organization) so it's not something to spend a lot of time worrying about now. Just be truthful on your application and you'll be fine.
