Recently I had a chat with one of my former student who said to me that he had attended an interview with one of the leading FM radios in Kerala.
He got to the last round with no issues. The problem came when they did some background check services to make sure he was clean. He was clean but his family’s political background wasn’t liked by the company.
Even though he himself didn’t have any political connections, his father had some connections with the left parties.0
Now in my personal opinion, I am pretty much against not giving a good chance to someone who knows his job – but I must say its the company’s loss..
So Background checks work?
Its all about how the company perceives it..
