Perhaps I Should Start a RaaS Platform (Reference as a Service)

Tired of losing references because they're being EXPONENTIALLY more exposed by PREEMPTIVE REFERENCE CHECKS, and asked to do CRAZY THINGS like FILL OUT ONLINE FORMS OR WORD DOCS, or called by STAFFING AGENCY ACCOUNT MANAGERS who care more about SELLING than ACTUALLY CHECKING your bona fides?

Try REFBOT, and spare the professionals you actually depend on!

PRICING

CANCEL AT ANY TIME

STARTER

Monthly: $20
Annual: $100

  • 10 reference checks/month (includes preemptive checks BEFORE YOU'RE EVEN SCHEDULED FOR AN INTERVIEW, and listening to staffing firm account managers' sales pitches)

RECOMMENDED OPTION

PREMIUM

Monthly: $40
Annual: $180 (TOP SAVINGS!!!)

  • 30 reference checks/month
  • EVERYTHING INCLUDED IN STARTER
  • Answering emails, filling out Word docs or online forms (when ref checkers think calling is too hard on them and not burdensome enough on references)

Seriously, don't give up your references until you're at the offer stage (which has been industry standard reference check etiquette for decades). When staffing agencies won't respect your references' time or acknowledge proper reference check etiquette, you have to protect the people you depend upon.

And there's no excuse to make a reference fill out some excessive form (in some cases, it may even be illegal to require some of the details I've seen).
