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 internal finalist must inform their current manager of their intent to transfer within the UNT System. After the current manager has been notified, the hiring manager must contact the current manager for a reference. All rehires must be checked through Campus HR prior to interviewing for rehire eligibility.
