AnythingIT/WeedHire Helps Avoid a Bad Hire with InterQuest Information Services

Weed Out Bad Candidates with Pre-Screening to Allow Your Growing Businesses to Flourish

Fair Lawn , NJ / ACCESSWIRE / June 11, 2014 / AnythingIT, Inc. (ANYI), AnythingIT today announced it has finalized a partnership with InterQuest Information Services, a rapidly growing pre-employment screening reporting platform. Through its new partnership, WeedHire will integrate InterQuest Information Services's pre-employment background checking application into the Weedhire.com job site, providing customers with an essential solution for all their hiring needs. InterQuest's self-service, web-based model allows companies to quickly and easily conduct legally-compliant employment screening.

"For customers in the legal cannabis industry, doing employment screening can be extremely important in Colorado," stated Vlad Stelmak, COO of AnythingIT. "Further, to work in Colorado's legal marijuana industry, employees must get fingerprinted and clear criminal and financial background checks." With the addition of InterQuest Information Services' employment screening tools, WeedHire customers are going to be able to order screening reports that verify numerous aspects of a candidate's application, including criminal history, educational background and past employment.

"InterQuest is excited about our relationship with WeedHire.com," said InterQuest President Steve Parsons. "WeedHire has established itself as a leader in this emerging market, and we're honored to have been selected by them as their partner. By utilizing InterQuest's convenient screening tools available from the WeedHire.com website, clients can get applicants who are qualified while reducing the potential of liability and litigation that can result from hiring individuals who have not been properly screened."

Parsons said that InterQuest's client base includes companies and organizations in the educational, medical and technology sectors, making their expertise and experience at perfect fit for employers hiring for the legal marijuana industry.

"We have plenty of experience with employment screening," stated David Bernstein, CEO of AnythingIT. "For the last two decades, many of the projects we worked on with the government and other large institutions required our employees to be screened because of the highly sensitive data we come across on a daily basis. We understand its importance and know that by adding InterQuest Information Services to the WeedHire job site, our customers will be able to make better-informed and confident hiring decisions that are not cost-prohibitive."

Although Weedhire.com will be the central online portal and social media source for job seekers and providers, it will not be involved with the growth, sale, or distribution of marijuana. It will however generate revenues via paid employment recruitment packages and advertising.
