Job Seekers: Learn How Self Check Helps You

Release Date:

Whether you’re a recent graduate entering the job market for the first time or an experienced worker seeking a new job, Self Check can help.

Self Check is a free, secure, online service available to everyone over the age of 16.  Self Check accesses the same databases as E-Verify. E-Verify is an online service used by employers at more than 1.6 million hiring sites to verify the employment eligibility of new employees. However, Self Check is for you – employers cannot require you to use it.

Self Check gives you a head start in the employment eligibility process because you’ll have an opportunity to resolve potential mismatches before a new employer initiates an E-Verify query. Self Check is free and easy to use, so why not try it out today?

All employers are required to verify the employment eligibility of everyone they hire. Job seekers are also encouraged to visit the E-Verify Employee Rights Toolkit to learn about their rights during the employment eligibility process.
