Auto-Verify References

How we Auto-Verify your candidates' References

Auto-Verify

If you choose to have the references auto-verified (a checkbox next to the Reference question type), we will automatically email their references when they submit them. We'll explain the reason for outreach and ask them to answer common reference questions about the candidate.

The questions we ask the references will vary, depending on whether a candidate marked the reference as professional or personal. We'll collect them via a survey.

Professional References

Professional references will receive the following set of questions (bold are required):

  • Full Name
  • How long have you known {name}?
  • How long did you work with {name}?
  • Please describe {name}'s day-to-day responsibilities when you work with them previously.
  • What do you think {name} needs to continue to grow in their career?
  • If you were hiring people, would you hire the {name} and, if so, for what type of position?
  • Is there anything else you'd like to share about {name}?

Personal References

Personal references will receive the following set of questions (bold are required):

  • Full Name
  • How long have you known {name}?
  • What is your relationship with {name}?
  • What would you say are {name}'s weaknesses?
  • What would you say are {name}'s strengths?
  • If you were hiring people, would you hire the {name} and, if so, why?
  • Is there anything else you'd like to share about {name}?

Each time a reference submits a response, we'll notify you, and we'll auto-populate answers into the candidate's profile for easy access. The references' contact information will also populate​ the candidate card.
