Employment History

Employment history is about a candidate’s past employer and companies he/she has worked with before. Employment history is also known as a work record, it helps employers to understand candidate professional backgrounds and his/her performance in the past. While recruiting a new candidate, recruiters or HR (Human Resource) check the history of the candidate including salary, job profile, and overall performance.

When a candidate applies for a job, the employer generally asks for work history either on a resume or job application. It includes the candidate’s most recent jobs typically two or five. Employers may also ask for several years of experience.
