In old college and university directories you’ll find a lot of information that will help you today with background checks and skip tracing.
What you’ll find when you look up the previous student by name:
1. Their phone number at the time. (Not a huge help, but it’s there.)
2. Their “local” address where they were receiving mail from the college and probably living.
3. Their “hometown” address. (This is usually where their parents live AND it tells you what county might have some public records to look at!)
4. Their major… and this can be huge!
Imagine for a moment that their major puts them into a job that requires a license. For example if their major is listed as Pharmacology (even 20 years ago!), that means they may today be a licensed or registered pharmacist. Simply check with the state licensing board to get up-to-date info on you subject!
This is a huge tip for skip tracing!
Use it and amaze your clients.
