Professional & Personal Reference

Go beyond what’s listed on the resume or disclosed during an interview.

One of the best indicators of how an individual will fit in to their new role is by having a conversation with former colleagues and managers. Professional references are found to be more honest, forthcoming and insightful when engaged with someone on behalf of a prospective employer, rather than the employer themselves.

Key Takeaways:

  • Gain valuable insight directly from former colleagues and managers
  • Validate and expand upon employment verification
  • Save your valuable time otherwise spent calling references

Employers find that over a third of applicants… generously embellish… their resume. Does your HR want to talk about it after the applicant’s hired or before?
