Companies are increasingly conducting background checks for their contingent workforce and freelancers. Therefore, before applying for a job it is recommended that you:
- Check your credit score which you can find at CreditKarma.com or at Equifax’ website
- Check your photos and posts on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and other social networks (although this information never gets deleted from these companies’ databases, you can delete it from your pages and profile so that perspective employers never see it.
- Check search results when your Google yourself
- Contact one of these companies that conduct background checks and maybe even do a background check on yourself.
Just like a free agent in sports, you are competing against other Freelancers for assignments, so it is good to make sure you have a clean record.
