What questions are references asked?
The standard questions you should expect potential employers to ask your references include:“Can you confirm the start and end dates of the candidate’s employment at your company?”“What was the candidate’s job title? Can you briefly explain some of their responsibilities in the role?”“How do you know the candidate?”
What do personal references get asked?
Similar to professional references, a list of personal references should be presented to a potential employer with the following information included: the reference’s name, job title and company (even if they’re not someone you’ve worked with), phone number and email address.
Can you put family members as references?
Hiring managers generally assume your parents can’t give an objective view of your work history or how you’ll behave as an employee, so don’t put them down as references. That goes for all family members, as they will most likely think you’re pretty great, Banul says. Your family’s opinion will always be biased.”
