Bulk reference checking

Bulk reference checking is the practice of conducting multiple reference checks on candidates in one go. This is done using reference checking software and can save hours of manual work. A reference check generally involves contacting the candidate’s former employers, supervisors and co-workers to verify past employment history and to obtain information about the individual's knowledge, skills, abilities and character.
