Sterling’s reference verifications include interviews with professional references regarding the candidate’s performance and reliability.

A credential check confirms issuing agency, license status, date awarded, expiration date, license type, and disciplinary actions.

Timeline verification provides a chronological overview of a candidate's work, education, and other activities over a specified length of time. Gaps are automatically identified according to client requirements and submitted for verification in line with client preferences.
