Job applicant education request
With every job applicant they must be able to have educational verification and be able to present their educational history to a interviewer on request, if they do not have shown it in their resume.
They are also required to list their educational history down on application forms; this is to see their history of course but to get a sound description and sample of their skills and ability to learn.

Verification of applicants education
As well as employment verification, you will need to verify an applicants educational history and achievements.
Just a sample of the severity of how many people lie on resumes is proved by studies that have shown that 60% of college registrars that experience transcript falsification routinely"
That means that there is an incredible amount of people lying on their resumes, so a verification of the applicants education is a must.
A way of doing this is to receive letters and certificates from the institute, but yes these can be falsified and copied.
So the best way to find out if your applicant is legit is to ring up the registrar of the university or institutes involved and personally ask about the applicants.
And the same with high schools just ring the principal and check out the data, don't forget to confirm the dates of graduation and the degrees or achievements received by the applicant.

Letter verifying someone was employed by your company
Basically this is the same as a employment verification letter, it is a letter verifying that so and so was employed at your company, much like the sample above.
These are a must in the recruitment agency, as some people can falsify their resumes to secure positions in certain industries.

Request for information concerning a job applicant
Again when applicants apply for jobs you have verify their history, and sometimes you will need to get police checks done on an applicant.
This can be handy for positions that require applicants with clean drivers licenses.
You can find out if applicants have theft allegations and convictions or even restraining orders.
You want a legitimate employee in your workplace not one that has a conviction of a serious kind.

Please note all personal names and company names in the above sample are fictional and the sample above is not a true verification letter it is just a sample.
