Add Questions to Automated Reference Checks

Reference checks are essential in verifying the qualifications of a potential hire. However, it is tedious to sit and dial multiple phone numbers and spend hours trying to reach references.

We recently introduced a portal that automates the process of collecting candidate references.

The portal works in three simple steps:

  1. Candidates receive an email from the portal in which they enter or confirm their professional references.
  2. An email is then sent to each reference asking for feedback.
  3. Finally, the reference is asked to endorse or reject the candidate.

After the first launch, we received great feedback from our clients. Our goal was to eliminate tedious reference checking. Now, we’ve made it even better.

We’re happy to announce that you can now add job specific questions to reference checks.

Instead of simply receiving positive or negative reviews, clients can now include specific questions related to the job opening. This will result in a much better response from candidate references regarding a potential new hire’s ability to excel in the position.
