Does referral boost the confidence to distinguish a good candidate from a bad one?
In this question, I'd like to focus on part time/casual job section. If you are a business owner or manager, who are responsible for hiring new employees, how would you describe your hiring process?How often do you have to find yourself calling up a candidate's references and does it helps you to distinguish a good candidate from a bad one?If you can spare 2 minutes of your time, I'd be really appreciate if you could quickly answer a survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TJ3LN22.We are currently working on a project that helps SME owners to improve the productivity when it comes the hiring process.
Quick clarification but the title is confusing. A referral is different from a reference. A referral is when someone recommends someone for the job and a reference is what the candidate gives you to check his employment history (and character if you can).
I do this process for a small business so will complete the survey.
Let me know if you want to chat further about this.
Also just so you know I did 1 as most important and then 2 as next most important. it didn't say in the survey so i am letting you know in case others do it the opposite way.
