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 contacting your reference via text. That means your references are not being contacted multiple times for each job you apply to, and they do not have to have a lengthy phone conversation!
To ask for referrals on Core, go to the Referrals section on your profile. Enter in your reference’s name, mobile number, and which project or work experience you worked with them on.
We will send your reference a text asking them to vouch for your work and the projects they have seen you complete. If they respond, a completed referral will show up on your profile, and any skills your reference said you excelled at will be included on your Smart Resume for future employers to see.
Referrals are a big deal in construction, and it is the same online. Make sure you do not just get referrals but you give them as well. We are only as good as our network, and companies want to see you are vetted by people they trust. This means that your referral can ask you for a reference back!
