Giving the last 4 digits of your SSN to Consulting Company
So, I’ve come across 2 consulting companies that have wanted the last 4 digits of my SSN. This is asked during the initial chat with the recruiter, before a technical interview is scheduled.
I was reluctant, so I didn’t give 1 company my info, and didn’t move forward with the interview. Then I get hit up by another company a few days later and they asked for the same thing. I’ve worked with other consulting companies in the past where i wasn’t asked to give the last 4 digits of my SSN and still moved onto a phone technical.
How common is this? Have you given them the last 4 digits of your SSN before the interview process even started?
