It will also help you determine the best potential employees by showing you how to elicit more detailed information about a candidate's actual achievements." "Dispelling several fallacies of reference checking (people won't talk to you, releasing information will get the former employer into trouble, references given by candidates aren't reliable because they're friends, etc.), reference checking expert Edward Andler reveals how you can legally and effectively get and give information about job candidates." "Managers, small company owners, and HR professionals alike will find The Complete Reference Checking Handbook an indispensable investigative aid in their efforts to improve hiring results and build a productive workforce."--BOOK JACKET.
