Why conduct a Self Certification check?

Self certification checks allows you to collect any type of information from candidates with ease. This check is popular among recruiters collecting longer forms, such as I9 or SMCR. It offers large amounts of flexibility as it enables you to request document uploads from candidates and add conditional logic to your request.
