Our leading turnaround times are lower than the national average, helping to ensure you’re hiring the right candidate sooner! Every note and update are thoroughly documented in real-time by our staff, keeping you informed!

Confirming that your candidate is actively licensed in their field is essential to ensure you’re hiring qualified candidates.
Invalid or expired licenses may automatically disqualify a candidate from hire and negligent hiring can cost your company serious litigation fees and penalty charges.
A professional licenses search verifies that individuals who need state licenses or certifications to engage in a professional activity, including medical professionals, attorneys, CPAs, and educators, have active/valid licenses, as necessary. Reports may include such information as the name and address of the licensee, the licensing agency, license type, number, and class, as well as license classification (business or personal), status of license, issue and expiration dates, restrictions and any adverse or disciplinary action. Licensed professions may vary by state.
References provide you with essential insight into who your candidate is as a person and an employee. Essential Screens provides you with a preset list of in-depth questions but also gives you the option to fully customize the list, so you get the answers to questions that are important to you! Interpersonal skills, dependability, strengths, and weaknesses can be determined through a quality professional reference!
Based upon your requests, we obtain as much information as the reference will provide. Essential Screens will make a minimum of 3 attempts to reach a reference before the screen will be returned “unable to verify” provided a working number was supplied by applicant/client. An attempt will include but is not limited to leaving a message, no answer and/or sending email.
