WHAT (TALENT ACQUISITION EXPERTS) NEED TO KNOW:
An advertorial with some solid reminders about what to cover during an Executive reference check.
REACTIONS: Reference checks are an odd beast - many organizations do them, but don't really devote the time, thought and resources to make them meaningful. Others skip them entirely. If you are going to do them, make sure that you make the effort to do them well. Reading this blog reminded me that a solid reference check is as involved (and lengthy) as a candidate interview.
VERDICT: Skim It: You'll get the details you need with a quick read. Great reminder - the value of back channel (or back door) references and some quick suggestions for how to get them if you don't know someone in their organizations.
