Reference checking is an effective means to gauge candidate quality and reliability. It is also a means to weed out applicants who may not be as qualified as their CV might suggest or may not be a right fit your company culture. Such discrepancies might not show clearly in an interview. There are many job seekers in the market currently. The competition is fierce for niche job roles, which may make some candidates exaggerate their credentials to stay ahead of their competition and land the role.
Chasing references to conduct proper reference checks can be time-consuming and exhaustive for hiring managers, but if you cut corners in making these efforts and fail to cross-check and ask essential questions, you may not get to know the real candidate until it’s too late. Whether the reference check highlights poor performance, reveals an exaggeration or reaffirms his experience and qualifications, it is a critical step in the hiring process, which sheds light on the candidate’s skill-fit and culture-fit essentials.
