Everyone involved here knows perfectly well that the people on a reference list are expecting your call, and they’re probably prepared to sing the candidate praises. So if you already know exactly how this conversation is going to go, why bother picking up the phone? The truth is, reference checks can be extremely valuable.
We already know that references provided by candidates tend to be skewed positive, and that’s not always particularly helpful to the person trying to decide if a candidate is the right fit. So how do you get a more balanced picture of what this person is actually like in the workplace?
Forward-thinking companies leverage their entire referral network. Hiring is the top challenge for startups and Fortune 500 companies alike. Thinking about hiring in a holistic way through referral networks can help you win at employer branding, recruitment marketing, and referral hiring.

But what about the job descriptions themselves?

One wrong hire on a very small foundational team can delay product launches, sales execution or throw off the chemistry of a once well-oiled machine. So when you’re faced with a candidate who checks all the boxes on paper and demonstrates a mastery of the in-person interview, how can you be sure you’ve found the right person for the job?
