From our experience in reference checking, we know that a reference does not need to be illegal in order to sabotage a job search. Professional reference checking services are important because a mediocre job reference can be enough for the job offer to go to another candidate.

Even factors like a delayed return phone call or the tone in a reference’s voice can have the same effect. Employing reference checking and reference consulting services prior to your job search can help you understand what potential employers experience when talking with your references, which helps you get the job you want.
As basic as the need for a good job reference is, many candidates don’t take the time to assure themselves through reference checking that the references submitted to prospective employers are providing the type of recommendation expected and that will result in a successful job transition.
