“I love doing reference checks!” – said no one ever.

Dread doing reference checks? So do we. Which is why we partnered with automated reference checking tool, SkillSurvey back in March.

However, now Hireology users can order SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360¨ Reference-Assessment in 3-easy steps directly through their Hireology account.

SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360¨ is a web-based reference-checking solution that allows recruiters and  hiring managers to collect behavioral-based feedback from a candidate’s references, including former managers and peers, in less than two days.  For $39 you can order hands-off reference checks directly through your Hireology account in 3-easy steps.

Within a few days, you’ll have the results of the assessment.

A snapshot of the overall SkillSurvey Reference Check Report:



1. The full report shows whether the reference does have a professional relationship with the candidate

2. The full report also shows the degree to which the candidate’s and the reference’s answers align.


Plus with an 80% response rate (significantally higher than traditional phone-checks), you’ll feel much more confident in the ulitimate hiring decision.
