Discover How To Legally Do Employment Screen

Have you been assigned to do pre employment screening for your company? Many companies don’t even do any type of employee screening and leave themselves open to unwanted employees. Your company and it employees need to be safe in their environment from individual that could harm them. Use the following tips to uncover unwanted employees.

Make sure you employee application obtains plenty of information to start your background check. Missing information that helps you learn more about the applicant will make your checking more difficult. Look over your application form and create one that will help you in your background check.

Your first check is to look into the persons Social Security information. This is the starting point for your employment screening check. This check is done to make sure the Social Security belongs to the individual. It also gives you information on his past addresses and alias identity. Many people hide their own status by using other people’s Social Security.

Once you have new addresses or alias, you can check the employment criminal background check and driving record with the new address or new names. This gives you a more accurate picture of what the prospective employee is like.

After you have gathered the information from the Social, Criminal, and Driving Records compare it to the application filled out by the individual. If some things don’t match, then you should talk to the individual and ask why the difference. Many times they will not remember that they had made some changes in their past with names or addresses.

The next thing to do is a pre-employment credit check. This part of the employment screening is where you look at credit report, which is not the typical credit report. You are not allowed by law to see their actual credit report with all of their financial data. You will see their report with many items blanked out.

To do an employment criminal background check you will need the applicant’s birth date. The law does not permit you to ask for a birth date on the initial employment application. What you have to do is to hire the person and make his employment status based on passing the criminal check.

One thing most screeners miss is getting past co-workers names and phone numbers. Usually they will get supervisor’s names but also fail to get their phone numbers. So get these names and phone numbers so that you can call and get more information on the prospective individual than would be provided by Human Resources.

There you have it a good outline to start your employment screening. You first start with a good application form. Move on to do the Social Security check and then do a driver’s license and employment criminal background check. End with a credit check. If you want more screening consider using a pre employment screening services.

Employment Prospects For Accountants And Cpas

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) website, “Accountants and auditors held about 1.3 million jobs in 2008.” (As of December 17, 2009, these were the latest statistics available.)

As with many other careers, accountants and auditors worked throughout private industry and government. Of these, about 24% worked for payroll service firms, tax preparation, accounting, and bookkeeping firms. Another 8% were self-employed. Among the larger set of management accountants, internal auditors, or government accountants and auditors, there is a subset who are licensed CPAs. Most CPAs work in urban areas because that’s where the jobs are–most corporate regional or central offices and government offices are in urban areas.

A small percent of accounting professionals are employed as full-time college and university faculty; others teach part-time while working as self-employed accountants or as accountants for private industry or government.

Job growth in the accounting sector is expected to grow faster than the average growth rate for all industries during the decade of 2008-2018. Within that group, CPAs should have the best prospects for employment and expected growth rate higher than those accountants and auditors without the CPA professional designation.

Very strong growth (22%) in the number of accountants and auditor jobs (an increase of 279,400 jobs) over the 2008-18 decade is expected because of several factors. We will discuss the factors tomorrow.

1.IF the economy expands, the number of businesses will increase which means that new jobs will be created in the accounting sector to set up the books, prepare taxes, and provide management advice. As these new businesses grow, the quantity and complexity of financial information reviewed by accountants and auditors on the costs, expenditures, taxes and corporate internal controls will increase as well. As the globalization of business accelerates, there will be an increased demand for accounting expertise and services regarding international trade and accounting rules as well as international mergers and acquisitions.

2.Because of financial scandals, investors will be demanding increased accountability for protecting an organization’s stakeholders. The need for these “accounting watchdogs” will spur job growth in the accounting sector.

3.Forensic accountants who can detect illegal financial activity will be even more in demand as the number of financial crimes increases. Crimes such as embezzlement, bribery, and securities fraud by individuals, by corporations, and by organized crime networks are increasing because computer technology has made these crimes even easier to commit and even harder to uncover. But the “good guys” have weapons as well: the development of new computer software and advanced electronic surveillance technology has made detecting financial crimes easier which increases the likelihood of discovery, investigation, prosecution and conviction. As the success rates of the “good guys” rise, the demand for forensic accountants will rise as well.

4.Opportunities for CPAs who are forensic accountants who support the work of attorneys in family law, bankruptcy and business law are increasing as well. For example, the recent high profile divorce of Sir Paul McCartney and Heather Mills included a dispute over how much the former Beatle, Sir Paul, was actually worth. His side claimed he was worth around USD $785 million while the ex-wife thought he was worth around $1.6 billion. Enter her team of forensic accountants who delved into the situation. As of June 2008, the accountants had not found any evidence which would have compelled the judge to award Ms. Mills more moola than her initial divorce settlement.

5.Changes in laws regarding taxes, financial reporting standards, business investments, mergers and other financial matters will lead to an increased need for accountants and auditors.

6.Changes in financial laws to curb corporate accounting fraud will create more jobs in the accounting sector. With the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in 2002 (also known as ‘Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act’ in the Senate and ‘Corporate and Auditing Accountability and Responsibility Act’ in the House), a new layer of accounting oversight was created to thwart the tide of corporate financial misfeasance. Prior to passage, there were a multitude of corporate and accounting scandals (e.g., Enron, Tyco International, Adelphia, Peregrine Systems and WorldCom) which cost investors billions of dollars. When the share prices of these corporations collapsed, the confidence of the public was shaken and the US securities markets trembled. The act established new or enhanced standards for all US public company boards, management, and for public accounting firms.

By creating a new public agency, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (or PCAOB), the act created a number of jobs in the accounting sector for overseers, regulators, inspectors, and those who would discipline accounting firms who were auditing public firms. In addition, another government agency, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) implemented the adoption of dozens of new rules to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. It is estimated that the growth in the accounting sector will be seen in new jobs being created in:

1.Public Company Accounting Oversight Board will expand to hire more accountants and CPAs to provide independent oversight of public accounting firms which audit their corporate clients. The central oversight board will register auditors as well as setting up the procedural framework for compliance audits, inspections and policing conduct, quality control, and enforcing compliance with specific elements of Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX Act).

2.Because the SOX Act prohibits auditing companies from providing services such as consulting and management advice to their clients, it is expected that there will be job growth in accounting companies which provide consulting and other non-auditing advice to their clients.

3.Since Sarbanes-Oxley requires that senior executives of a company (such as the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer) take individual responsibility for the completeness and accuracy of the corporate financial reports, it is likely that those who are rise to C-level will have to have more familiarity with accounting than a manager’s passing glance. This opens a career path for CPAs into the CEO chair as well as the CFO chair. (Since the CEO is asked to sign the company’s tax return, this is all the more reason for the person to be a CPA as well as a manager.)

7.Since 2002, funding for the SEC has nearly doubled. The SEC hires accountants who can censure or bar from practice stock brokers, advisors, or dealers. In addition, SEC hires CPAs and accountants in Washington, D.C., *Division of Corporation Finance, *Division of Enforcement, and the *Office of the Chief Accountant. For SEC jobs examining financial statements in public filings, resolving controversial accounting issues, and in rule writing, there are openings in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City and San Francisco in the offices of: *Division of Trading and Markets, *Division of Investment Management and the *Office of Compliance, Inspections and Examinations.

The SEC prefers to hire experienced CPAs with three to eight years of public accounting experience in the securities industry. Desirable previous experience would include audit work involving SEC financial reporting, complex internal audit work involving multi-national corporations, or mergers and acquisitions related work. Typically, these accountants enter at the mid- and senior staff accountant positions–in the SK-13 through 17 levels. The grade at which the person starts their SEC career is based on a combination of the amount of relevant work experience and of graduate education in accounting, finance, or related fields.

In looking at the entire market, the best job prospects will be for CPAs while the prospects for accountants and auditors who have a college degree or any certification are good.

Wages for Accountants and Auditors May 2008 BLS Statistics: Median Income: $59,430 Top 10%: $102,380+ “According to a salary survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, bachelor’s degree candidates in accounting received starting offers averaging $48,993 a year in July 2009; master’s degree candidates in accounting were offered $49,786 initially.

Accounting Employment Rate of Change In the decade from 2008 to 2018, employment opportunities for accountants and auditors are expected to grow by 22% (or 279,400 new jobs), which is faster than the average for all occupations. As previously mentioned, job growth will be driven by a projected increase in the number of businesses/expansion of the economy, changing financial laws, and corporate governance regulations, and increased accountability for protecting an organization’s stakeholders.

Opportunities for CPAs should increase markedly because their oversight is needed to focus increased scrutiny on corporate finances and accounting procedures. Those CPAs who are management accountants and internal auditors will be needed to uncover and eliminate fraud before audits and to make sure that critical processes and procedures are documented completely and accurately. The need for CPAs who are government accountants will increase because of an effort to make government agencies more efficient and accountable.

Job opportunities for CPAs will increase rapidly while opportunities for accountants and auditors will increase but at a slower rate than for CPAs. The need for accounting clerks will increase as consumers opt for storefront tax preparers such as Liberty and H & R Block, rather than hiring a CPA firm. The shift to tax preparation software will take some business away from CPAs who handled the uncomplicated returns of individuals. This will make a very minor adjustment in employment opportunities while increasing opportunities for clerks.

Job Prospects Across the public and private sectors, job opportunities for CPAs will be excellent while those who are accountants and auditors will be favorable. (Source: US Bureau of Labor Statistics). Enrollment in CPA preparation courses is now growing as more students are attracted to the profession because of its job growth, increased compensation, stability-and in answer to corporate accounting scandals.

In the wake of the Enron and Tyco accounting scandals, the public views professional certification as even more necessary because it ensures that the accountant’s ethics are sound and his/her knowledge and credentials are up-to-date.

Regardless of specialty, accountants and auditors who have earned professional recognition through certification or licensure should have the best job prospects. Applicants with a master’s degree in accounting or a master’s degree in business administration with a concentration in accounting also will have an advantage.

Individuals who are proficient in accounting and auditing computer software or have expertise in specialized areas-such as international business, specific industries, or current legislation-may have an advantage in getting some accounting and auditing jobs. In addition, employers increasingly seek applicants with strong interpersonal and communication skills. Many accountants work on teams with others who have different backgrounds, so they must be able to communicate accounting and financial information clearly and concisely. Regardless of qualifications, however, competition will remain keen for the most prestigious jobs in major accounting and business firms.

In addition to openings from job growth, the need to replace accountants and auditors who retire or transfer to other occupations will produce numerous job openings in this large occupation. —US Bureau of Labor Statistics For accountants, the career path upwards requires that of becoming a CPA, a Certified Public Accountant. Progressing from being an accountant to becoming a CPA offers greater opportunities for promotion to management and higher salaries.

In California, the requirements to sit for the CPA Exam are: *A bachelor’s degree; *24 semester units in accounting-related subjects; *24 semester units in business-related subjects; *150 semester units (or 225 quarter units) of education; *Passing the Uniform CPA Exam; *One year of general accounting experience supervised by a CPA with an active license; and *Passing an ethics course.– Logging 500 hours of attest or auditing experience will allow you to obtain the authority to sign attest reports. In many firms having a CPA license is the only way one is promoted into upper management. Becoming a CPA increases your opportunity for promotions and a higher salary.

Power of Focus !

If you are anything like me, you probably find yourself often thinking of new projects to start, new things to achieve.I did that in my beginning on Internet. That in itself is very beneficial and indeed a required ingredient for success. The trick is to know where to draw a line.

The trap I kept falling into was hoping and looking for new and better programs all the time,easy to find new once,but i forgot about them the next day,instead of working on the programs you already joined and going for the results there.

I would often actually get dragged into gathering more and more information on new opportunities. I would spend time on developing them right then and there. I would be stealing the precious time away from the current project I was supposed to be working on. Obviously, it was a trap.Be aware of this trap! The current project would suffer, because there is only so much time in a day.

No one gets results form Surfing the Internet for “Get Rich Tomorrow “and thinking,there must be an easier way!There is not,only hard work will give you success.Focus and work on your Business !

Then I would get discouraged with my current project and drop it because I didn’t see any results.

Think long term!

One of my future projects would become my current project for the time being, until I’d drop it in favor of the next project.Its a trap,yes. This is how most of New to Internet do it!!Don’t do the same!

Can you see the trap?
And it gets even worse: If you keep on doing this for long enough, you will actually program your subconscious mind NOT to complete a project EVER. You will forever keep on failing.

Eventually it may even filter through to other areas of your life.I did the same in the beginning,so much waste of time and money!

There is to many Traps out there.

But there is so much valuable information out there, go and find them,that developing your on line business to a profitable stage can take forever, UNLESS you start employing the tremendous power of focus.Its the only way to do it,when you understand this you will get results!

Here is only one way,focus.To be a success in your on line venture, you must not be working on more than two projects at a time, EVER. And preferably work on just one project, particularly if you only do your on line venture on part-time basis.

And by that I mean, don’t get distracted. Don’t dilute your precious time. Work on your project, whatever it may be, until completion.
Learn the program,take the training section over and over again,until you really know how it works!

Many programs can be difficult to understand,but take your time to understand it!

Learn how to!

By all means, plan you future. If you want to work on the future ideas,
set an hour per week aside for doing just that. And then each week spend that hour thinking
about your new projects, write them down. When the time is up, go back to your current project.

I will guarantee you one thing:
If you develop and use the power of focus, your success will get better and better with each project. That’s how i got from not getting any results to see great results every week.Focus.
On the other hand, if you keep falling into the trap of working on too many projects at the same time, the chances are you will get nowhere.

Geothermal Energy as a Viable Green Energy Source in Near Future

In addition to solar energy and wind energy, geothermal energy is one of the most unexplored sources of Green Energy. However, with development in technology it would become possible in near future to benefit from this free source of energy.

Geothermal energy is the heat generated in the earths crust. This is a Green Energy source that is both sustainable and clean. The resources of this form of energy include ground hot water or hot rocks found at a depth below the Earths surface. The source of the energy originated in the red hot magma present several kilometers below the surface.

Tapping Geothermal Energy

Throughout the Earths surface, the shallow ground maintains an almost consistence temperature that ranges between 50F and 60F. Geothermal heat pumps are designed for tapping this source of Green Energy for both heating and cooling buildings. This system comprises of the following components:

Heat pump
Heat exchanger
Air delivery system

The heat exchanger comprises of a network of pipes that are buried below the shallow surface close to the building.

During the winters, the heat pump takes the heat away from the heat exchanges to pump it to the air delivery system. And, during the summer season, an opposite process takes place. The heat pump takes heat from the air delivery system and transfers it to the heat exchanger. In addition, this heat removed from the indoor can also be used for heating water.

Generating Electricity

Electricity can be generated from this Green Energy source by drilling wells into the underground hot water reservoirs. Some of the power plants utilize the steam emitted from the reservoirs for running turbines or generators. And, some plants make use of the hot water for boiling a fluid to vaporize it and to turn a turbine.

If hot water is available at the surface, the heat provided by it can be used directly. The range of direct applications of this Green Energy source include:

Heating water in fish farms
Heating buildings
Nourishing plants in greenhouses
Industrial procedures like pasteurizing milk
Drying crops

Use of Hot Rock Resources

Hot rocks are found at depths between 3 and 5 miles below the surface of earth. The good thing is that these hot rocks can be found almost everywhere on the planet. This resource can be tapped in an area by dropping water into one well, allowing it to circulate through the hot rocks and then pulling the hot water out from another well. Geothermal energy is currently not being used for any commercial purposes. In addition, the current technology doesn’t allow extracting heat from the hot molten magma which is a huge resource of sustainable Green Energy.

Alternative Materials for Wall Construction in Your Home

One of the areas in home construction that continues to evolve over time is the list of materials available for frame construction. In primitive times, homes were framed using sticks,or even bones, and the walls were formed from mud, grass and other local natural resources. Obviously, in today’s world, a homeowner would not want to build their home from bones and grass. Luckily, many other choices are available in the building materials market for those looking to turn their home plans into a structurally sound living space.

Log cabins were also a type of house used long ago; but they are once again popular among those looking to build their dream homes. Many home plans utilizing logs as a primary building material are available for folks who enjoy a rustic appearance,yet want to utilize the latest building and design technologies. One of the disadvantages to using logs in the construction of homes is that although logs come from trees, a renewable natural resource, they take longer to replenish than other natural building products.

In the early twentieth century, steel gained huge popularity in the construction of commercial buildings. More recently, steel has gone from being a material used for commercial buildings to a commonly used material for personal residences. Some of the advantages of using steel products in your home’s construction include the longevity and strength of the materials, and its resistance to decay and wear from the elements,rain,snow,etc.

The strength of steel framing enables a home-builder to eliminate some of the other structural walls typically required when using other,less supportive materials and to open space that might otherwise be taken up by wall construction. Steel beams ordered from the specification sheet of your home plans will generally arrive pre-cut into the appropriate required sizes, with fastener holes pre-drilled in the correct locations.

The disadvantages of using steel as a framing material for residential construction include the necessity of hiring specially trained professional builders who can assemble steel frames. The cost of steel is also significantly higher than wood materials. However, if you are a homebuilder looking for quality and longevity in realizing a set of house plans into the home of your dreams, then steel is the right framing material for you.

Wood materials are still the most commonly used for framing in residential home construction. House plans are generally designed with the assumption that the builder will be using wood-framing, at least for the upper levels of the house. Technology has increased the industry’s ability to extend the life of wood framing, and to increase the wood’s resistance to fire, water and insects.

In conclusion, after purchasing floor plans, the builder will need to decide what specific materials will be used in building a custom designed home. The options presented above are just some of the framing choices available. Keep in mind that if you plan to use a material like steel in the framing construction, it is advisable to discuss this with the provider of your floor plans and other home plan documents, since reducing the amount of material required may enable you, the new homeowner, to significantly reduce your building and framing costs.
