Interviewing Policy (UM System) HR Policy 110 Interviewing http://www.umsystem.edu/ums/rules/hrm/hr100/hr110 Guidelines List of Appropriate/Inappropriate Questions
Reference Checking Before any reference call is made, the chairperson should: – Inquire if the person is still interested in the position, and if yes.. – Inform the candidate the committee will be calling references Keep careful notes to assist in reconstructing the conversation for your fellow committee members Search for patterns of strength and limitation; ask for examples of the individual’s experiences or decisions Don’t give equal weight to every remark – consider the source and the depth of the respondent’s relationship to the candidate When do I conduct reference checks? Are they required?
Reference Checking (continued) Keep a record of: – Name of search committee member – Name of applicant under consideration – Name / position of reference – Time/day/date of call – Area code/telephone number called We cannot ask informants questions about a candidate that would be illegal to ask the candidate directly. All questions must be job related. Be careful what you write down so that information will not be interpreted as unlawful discriminatory information (i.e. “the person is too old,” “is disabled”, etc.
