Why did your recruiter ask me for my ssn?

Our recruiters may ask you for you social security number. Some of our clients require us to provide your ssn at the time we submit your resume to them. Our customers use this information to check eligibility to return to work for that particular customer. Artech does not use your ssn for any purpose at the time of submission other than to submit your resume to our client. We may ask you for the last four, five, or all nine digits or your ssn during the interview process and depending on our client’s requirement.

If you have any concerns about this, the Artech recruiter or his/her manager will be able to provide more details.
