Reference Checks

Reference checks provide valuable insight into a candidate’s strengths, weaknesses, and overall suitability for a position.

Professional Reference Check

A professional reference check includes an interview conducted with a co-worker, supervisor, or educator who has direct knowledge of the candidate’s performance and dependability. If a performance review cannot be obtained from the provided reference, we will pursue an alternative professional reference as determined by the client’s desires.

Information contained in a professional reference includes:

  • References relationship to the applicant
  • Length of the professional relationship
  • Information about pertinent work experience
  • Information about the applicant’s overall character

Personal Reference Check

A personal reference check includes an interview with a friend or member of the community who can provide information about an applicants personality traits and character.

Information contained in a personal reference includes:

How can I speed up the process?

It is extremely helpful to instruct your candidates to contact their professional references to let them know that their name has been provided as a reference. This gives your candidates the opportunity to verify that they have provided correct contact information for the reference and greatly increases the likelihood that references will respond to requests in a timely manner.
