A lot of business people keep specialized team of hiring professionals who are experts at recruiting the kind of people you are looking for your business growth.
However, candidates these days have gone one step ahead and they are quite aware of what kind of questions you will ask them and therefore they are already prepared to answer such questions with finesse. The growing rate of unemployment and demand for jobs have forced people to get whatever job they can get and many go beyond the boundaries of honesty and truth to claim that job opportunity. Hence, a better way to check if your employees are telling the truth is to ask them different questions that they might not expect. Asking same regular questions about their qualifications and work experience might not give you any hint of whether they are saying the truth or simply faking it.
Search for their ID on popular social networking websites where you can compare their real information with the information they have mentioned on their resume as candidates will never expect that employers might go for background verification through social networking website. You can ask them to make a call to some of their references so that you can talk to them directly on the phone before you provide them with appointment letters to work in your company.
