The importance of good references

This excellent article on Triple Pundit speaks to the important role that references play on whether you get hired.  The author uses Allison & Taylor to check his references and finds that one of his friends was unknowingly giving him mediocre references.  The author reminds us that “a reference check is one of the last things HR will do once you have been short-listed for a job.”
