网友问题: 美国Reference check会问那些问题? 如何找人做reference?

答案:

Reference check 的重点就在于检查对照candidate在resume和interview中列举的内容是否属实。所以千万不要提供任何不属实的内容。有统计说大约百分之四十的Resume都有不同程度的"不真实"。事实是即便是candidate拿到了offer,并且开始工作之后,resume或者 interview中的"不真实"被发现的话,都可能成为中断雇用合约的理由。(这并不是说你一定会被解雇,只是如果你的雇主愿意的话,这可以成为一个很好的解雇理由)

什么样的人可以做你的reference呢?以前工作的employer,supervisor,工作中的同事,如果你是学生就可以选你的professor, classmate。如果你愿意,你的朋友也可以成为你的reference。

最常见的reference应该是以前工作中的employer或者supervisor了。很多公司规定雇员在提供Reference的时候只能提供非常有限的information,比如beginning and ending employment dates,beginning and ending salary和beginning and ending job title etc。但是你的prospective employer可能问的不只这些。以下是一些常见的Reference question。

-What were the beginning and ending employment dates for this individual?
-What was this individual's beginning and ending salary?
-What positions did the individual hold?
-Did this individual earn promotions?
-What were the individual's most-recent job duties?
-Why did the individual leave your company?
-Is there any reason why your company would not rehire this individual?
-Would you recommend this individual for a position at another company? Why or why not?
-How did this individual's performance compare to other employees with similar job duties?
-In your opinion, what are the individual's strengths? Weaknesses?
-Did this individual get along well with management and peers?
-Was this individual a team player?
-Was this individual a motivated self-starter?
-Did any personal problems affect this individual's work performance?
-Do you think this individual will perform well as a [job title]?
-What kind of job is best suited for this individual's abilities?
-How would you describe the individual's overall performance?
-Is there anything of significance you'd like to add?
-How would you describe the individual's leadership, managerial or supervisory skills?
-Does the individual communicate well orally and in writing?
-How do you rate the individual's ability to plan short-term? Long-term?
-Did the individual make sound and timely decisions?
-Did the individual get along well with management, subordinates and peers?
-Did the individual plan, administer and make budget well?
-How would you describe the individual's technical skills?
-Did the individual demonstrate honesty and integrity?
-How well did the individual manage crisis, pressure or stress?
-Describe the individual's ability to attract and counsel top talent.

没有人知道reference的回答在prospective employer的心目中究竟占据多少分量,作为candidate我们可以做到的就是尽量找可以为你"说好话"的reference。还有一个需要注意的是就像我们interview的时候需要准备一样,你也要帮助你的reference准备reference check。最糟糕的情况就是你的reference对自己是你的reference这件事毫无所知,突如其然的接到一个电话打听你的事情,可是怎么也想不起来你这个人。为了避免这种情况,你可以做的有以下几件事情:

1. 征得同意。在你决定把某人作为你的Reference的之前,征的他/她的同意。

2. 事先通知。如果你的Prospective employer和你要了reference, 尽快和你的reference联系一下,告诉他们也许会有人和他们联系,告诉他们你申请的是怎样的工作。这样你的reference在接到联系的时候不会措不急防。

3. 表达感谢。不管是你拿没拿到offer,和你的reference联系一下,报告一下result,表达一下你的感谢之意。这是基本的礼貌。

4. 最后一条非常重要的是如果你是一边上班一边找工作的话,最好不要用current supervisor做reference。除非你确信你的supervisor全力支持你换工作,否则,不要冒这个险。
