Identifying and Preventing Candidate Identity Fraud with Sean Slater

In this episode, Christina was excited to welcome Sean Slater to the podcast to discuss the ever increasing trend of Candidate Identity Fraud. Sean is the VP of Client Service at The Brixton Group a national technology staffing & recruiting company headquartered in Charlotte North Carolina. 

Christina and Sean discuss how technology and the rise of remote working has contributed to increased cases of CID and how third party recruiting has added to the difficulty of monitoring such activities and identifying their perpetrators. Sean unpacks some vital tips on what to look for when interviewing candidates and points out a few key techniques that he and his team employ when remotely interviewing potential hires.

In addition to discussing CID and how to prevent it, Sean also offers up his take on the state of the staffing industry and what he predicts for 2023. Christina and Sean discuss how layoffs at major Fortune 500 tech firms won’t necessarily affect smaller mid-sized companies and how staffing agencies can leverage this moment for their advantage.
