Reference Checks

UNDERSTAND

References provide valuable information about a candidate's performance, help you to rank candidates, and assist in making your final decision. We recommend that you check at least three references for each candidate, with one of those three being a direct supervisor.

For hiring managers at UWMC, contact your employment specialist to complete references for you for your permanent recruitments.
