How does the E-Reference Check process work?

Our app will walk you through the steps to add information about each reference. You must have your reference’s email address. Clicking on question mark symbols will guide you and answer any questions you may have for each step.

Entries you make during this process will be saved so you may leave and return without losing any data.

When you have completed the entries for your references,
careerandtalenthub   will generate questions based on the type of reference and your interaction with them.

You have the option to delete any of the questions 
careerandtalenthub  creates. Best of all, you can create additional questions that will prompt your reference to highlight specific areas about you as an individual.

When you are ready, careerandtalenthub  will generate a form filler PDF questionnaire to your references that can be completed on a phone, tablet or computer in just 3 minutes.

Responses from references are compiled into a professional and easy to read report in your
careerandtalenthub  account that will be available for your use for years to come.

      Reference types

How do I get started?

All you need is the name and email address for your references. When you are ready, 
click here to begin. Click either “Add Professional Reference” or “Add Personal Reference” to begin the ERC process. Instructions are provided at each stage of the process if you need help.

I forgot my password or I want to change it. How do I create a new password?

At the login page, click - “Forgot password? Click here to create a new password”

Unfortunately, your email address is your username and to protect the integrity of the process, you cannot change your email address. You can create a new username at no cost with another email address.

How can I add additional information to confirm the validity of my reference such as his/her LinkedIn profile, a business telephone number and other information?

This step is highly recommended.

 Recruiters will be concerned about the validity of your references. We highly recommend that you provide business email addresses, enter your reference’s LinkedIn account information and add any other pertinent information relating to your references to help confirm the validity of each.

If you do not have this information at the time you add your references, entries you make will be saved. You can return to your account at a later time and add additional information about your references.
