What makes SkillSurvey Reference the industry-leading automated online reference-checking solution?

We’re not just automating the process of checking references, or moving online an inefficient, time-consuming, low-value, telephone process. Our patented solution is revolutionary, delivering feedback from references in a much quicker and more candid way that can be used earlier in the hiring process. The Pre-Hire 360 workflow has a growing library of hundreds of job-specific surveys designed to help the references rate the candidate on the specific behaviors that are relevant to a given job. Ratings have been validated to correlate with reduced first-year turnover for cause and better post-hire performance.

How long does the process take to get results on the candidate?
On average surveys are completed by a minimum of 4 references in less than 2 days.
What makes SkillSurvey Source different from other online passive candidate sources?
Because a candidate’s references and referrals typically come from the same industry or job area of your candidates, this gives hiring managers a new source of targeted talent. With a growing list of high-quality candidate leads, you can spend more time working on those hard-to-fill positions and less time posting to various job boards or sifting through resumes.
How can members of my recruiting team benefit?
Recruiters can search for passive candidates based on key words or criteria as well as distance to a particular location. These searches can be saved as pipelines and Recruiters can be alerted when passive candidates opt-in that meet their search criteria, so they can reach out to them immediately.
I already have another system to manage passive candidates. How can I get these passive candidates into that system?
We have two options:

  1. We can integrate with your system to automatically send over passive candidates as they opt-in to Source.
  2. You can download an Excel file of your passive candidates on a regular basis and upload them into your system.
