CHECK YOUR REFERENCES
Senior managers report removing one in three (34%) job candidates from consideration for a position with their company after a reference check.
Senior managers were asked, “When speaking to an applicant’s job references, what is the most important information you hope to receive?”
|38% A view into the applicant’s strengths and weaknesses|
|22% Description of past job duties and experience|
|19% Confirmation of job title and dates of employment|
|12% A sense of the applicant’s preferred work culture|
|10% Description of workplace accomplishments|
Responses do not total 100 percent due to rounding.
