For us, applicants are asked to provide name and contact numbers of the referees on the submission sheet, but also the completed referee report (another form completed by the person giving the reference for the applicant).Interesting to bring this up; I've heard that one should never ever put 'References available upon request' on your CV, but always give the contact details/position of your referees. Because the company won't want to contact you again to get more details they should already have in order to contact your referees. Ash states that 'referee reports' are included, so I would suspect those would be the actual reference given by the referee, rather than referee themselves.
To my knowledge this is the standard here. It's up to the employing company to get the reference, and they more often than not acknowledge that they will not contact references unless absolute necessary (for the reason of endangering jobs). Don't know if Cobol would disagree with me though.Nine times out of 10, we will get the referee names and phone numbers, with no written reports.
Taking over the world...control the food supply...?And to what nefarious end?
My colleague has just asked me "Why are there no sheep visible in the fields on Google maps?"
If you scroll to the cattle farms in CA, you can find cows.Lots of livestock has been removed, cows, horses, deer...
*laughs*You're a redhead from the UK, what do you expect?
Depends upon the type of job and its level - in the UK you can only really confirm that the applicant worked for the company being used as a reference and salary package details. The employing company however may phone up and get hints as to the applicats suitability - nothing is written down.To my knowledge this is the standard here. It's up to the employing company to get the reference, and they more often than not acknowledge that they will not contact references unless absolute necessary (for the reason of endangering jobs).
