If you’re on the job hunt, make sure your professional references are impeccable. And if you are an employer – make sure you request references carefully.

Excellent references can be critical to landing a job. Job seekers should contact former managers or supervisors and ask permission to list them as professional references.

Should you ask your references for a letter of recommendation? It’s not necessary, Legal Locator Service will prefer to speak or email your manager or supervisor directly.

If you are an employer when Legal Locator Service checks references –  we avoid asking “yes” or “no” questions.  We ask about the applicant’s abilities, work ethics, attendance patterns, how they interact with others, trustworthiness, professionalism, and more. These are just a few questions we ask when conducting professional reference checks. A reference check is a critical tool for verifying applicants’ qualifications and claims about themselves.
