Time to Rethink the Value of Traditional Candidate References, by Steve Lowisz

Stashed in: Hiring

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

"When speaking with provided references, I skip the questions about whether the candidate is a hard worker because I know what they are going to say. Instead, I try to always ask one question to candidate references: What do we need to be aware of to ensure that we create an environment that will help the candidate succeed?"

In my opinion that's the best question a hiring manager can ask.
