Reference Checking

Woman Checking References

Find out what your references are really saying about you.

  • Know what your past employers are telling your prospective employers
  • Head off questionable references before they hurt your chances
  • Use an independent, third-party resource to do your investigation
You know potential employers will be calling, but do you know what your references will say?

Get your references checked, confidentially and professionally. Be confident your past employers are helping, not hurting, your candidacy.

Note: Reference checking and employment verification interviews are conducted by experienced professionals who use complete discretion when contacting your references. We guarantee your confidentiality and will not reveal you are the source of the reference request. All interviews are conducted by phone unless you request otherwise.
