What is a referral?
At Core, we understand that references and recommendations are an important part of any job search- this is especially valuable in construction. Core helps you create a full smart resume by giving you the ability to add referrals to your Core Profile. These referrals show potential employers that other people vouch for your skills.
Did your old supervisor see you complete a bunch of flawless installations? Have you worked with the same crew for years? Maybe you just completed your apprenticeship with a master electrician? Send them a referral request! They can tell us about your skills and put a spotlight on all the great work you do. This shows potential employers that you are the one for the job and you have the proven experience to back it up.
The Core advantage
Employers will often request professional references in order to verify the information that you submit. We make this easy by allowing you to enter this information up front, then Core contacts your reference via text to collect their feedback. This means your references aren’t being contacted multiple times for each job you apply to, and they don’t have to have any lengthy phone conversations.
