Reference Checks

Reference Checks for External Candidates

After an employment application has been submitted and an interview conducted, hiring managers should conduct reference checks prior to extending an offer of employment. A minimum of two (2) references must be completed for the final external candidate. One reference should be a former/current supervisor. A Recruiter is available to provide guidance to hiring managers seeking references.

Reference Checks for Internal Candidates

When considering an internal employee as a final candidate, the hiring manager should contact the employee prior to contacting the candidate’s supervisor for a reference. The current manager must always be contacted for a reference.
Rehires must be reference checked through Campus HR and the former manager before interviews.
