When do you check references on candidates?
By Patrick Ropella Posted 01/06/2012
This depends on each client’s requirements and the nature of the candidates employment status. If requested, we will reference check candidates before they are considered by a client, but we typically check references before the first face-to-face interview. We preliminarily use a web based reference check offering called Checkster that is very fast, simple to use, and very effective. If a client asks that more in-depth references be completed, then those are started when a client is preparing for an offer and are done by phone or even in person. All candidates are reference checked normally by both the client, and Ropella before any offer is extended. We believe there should be a partnership process when it comes to background checks, degree confirmation checks, and reference checks.
