Reference Check

Hiring Success Glossary

Reference checks are completed towards the end of the recruiting process and in many cases job offers are contingent on a candidate successfully completing reference checks and a background check.

Reference check questions

The kind of information that can be released varies from company to company. Some might confirm dates of employment and the position held while others will disclose rehire eligibility – although that is not as common as it was 5-10 years ago.

Reference check service

While reference checks may be done manually, some organizations may choose to outsource reference checking to a 3rd party provider. This may be the most efficient option for larger companies working with a high volume of candidates. In some cases, these reference check services offer direct integrations with the recruiting software.
