Do You Know How to Conduct Effective Reference Checks?

Reference checks protect your company from making costly hiring mistakes.

When designed properly, a reference check will allow you to:
  • Verify a candidate's employment background to fill in gaps in work history or other missing application sections.
  • Determine the actual identity of a candidate to ensure he or she matches up with government identification systems.
  • Eliminate candidates who lie on their applications about their work and educational history.
  • Gather information about past work assignments and responsibilities as they relate to the resume provided.
  • Gain more insight into the candidate's suitability for the job and fit with your organization.
