Evuleocha, Stevina U.; Ugbah, Steve D.; Law, Sweety
Journal of Employment Counseling, v46 n3 p98 Sep 2009
Authors investigated perceptions of campus recruiters (N = 168) in the San Francisco Bay Area regarding the importance of 15 types of information they solicit from job applicants' references in making selection decisions. Results suggest campus recruiters should consider 10 types of information to assist them in making selection decisions. Results also indicate that selected recruiters' demographic variables affect only 4 types of information job applicants' references should provide: decision-making skills, computer skills, work ethic, and fit with the corporate culture and prospective coworkers. The implications of these results for both employment references and recruiters are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
