Job seekers view their half of the equation as more stressful that the HR representative tasked with placing the best candidate in the right position. We’re here to tell you that you’re only half-right. The hiring end may seem like the more powerful position to be in when considering that being unemployed requires more energy than a 9 to 5. There’s no denying that, selecting 1 candidate from a pool of hundreds can be quite the headache, especially when all of the required tools aren’t afforded to the hiring executive. Such as, Electronic Employment Verification™ (EEV™).

There’s nothing more annoying or wasteful than an unethical applicant who says anything it takes to get the job, only to throw the entire work environment out of whack. Because of the lies they told, the wokplace has become a stressful one for others on the team and that bleeds out onto the customer platform in ugly ways. Let’s discuss this a little further.

R.E.F.S.™ believes that one of the most important steps isn’t listed above, which is validating the references of the candidate before forming an attachment or belief. By the time a recruiter has decided that they like a candidate, they’ve already invested many labor hours forming that conclusion without ever determining if the candidate has applied honestly or has exhibited harmful behaviors at previous employers they’ve neglected to list on their resume. This is where EEV™ plays the role of Superman. Since the employer can conduct an unlimited amount of reference checks with either a Behold™ or Phoenix™ Subscriber Plan, it doesn’t cost them much to check the references of a candidate whose resume has captured their attention. On the other hand, waiting to verify references until after conducting an interview is wasteful when the interviewer could have prepared questions for the interviewee regarding the search results. See how that works?

R.E.F.S.™ Subscriber Portal

An employer can invest a few seconds to log into their Subscriber Dashboard, conduct a search, and attach those results to the candidate’s resume prior to scheduling their interview to allow the candidate the opportunity to discuss the results. Both the candidate and employee have saved oodles of time, money, and effort.
