Selecting and Hiring

If the screening process is through, selecting the best applicants for the job is easy. However, before making the final selection, one last step should be taken, the top candidates, reference should be checked for accuracy and input. You should be aware of the tendency of references to give a rose – colored picture of applicant’s characters and ability. Despite this potential bias, a careful check with former employers, schools and other references can be most constructive. At a minimum, checking can determine whether or not the applicant was truthful about his or her employment history.
