Publisher Comments:

Avoid doing business with liars and deceivers, with the help of the nation's leading reference-checking expert

Whether you're hiring a CEO, a general contractor or a nanny, you're taking a risk. It's the nature of business. More people than you might realize go to great lengths to misrepresent themselves. Reference Checking for Everyone helps you make sure the person you hire or take on as a tenant is not only trustworthy but is the best person for the job. This guide helps you to:

  • Extract detailed histories from vague or misleading responses
  • Filter fact from fiction--and deal with dishonest candidates
  • Contend with legal issues, citing questions you can and cannot ask
  • Make a well-informed, confident final hiring decision
  • Use waivers that protect you legally during the reference-checking process

"Captures the what, why, how and when of comprehensive reference checks. Overlook this material at your own peril."--Dave Robertson, Vice President of Administration, Hillenbrand Industries "I don't know anybody who could better explain how real reference checking is supposed to be done than Paul Barada."--Mary Walls, PLD Manager, Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company

"[A] . . . practical and easy-to-read guide to everything you need to know on the subject. Finally, someone got it right!"--Roberta L. Gordon, AVP for Human Resources, Brown University
