Things just got personal

Your hiring process is about to get a serious upgrade. If you've been struggling with getting high-quality, meaningful personal references, here's your solution—ask better questions, get better answers, and pick the right candidate.

Personal reference form FAQs:

1. How does this personal reference form help me get to know my applicants?

Typeforms turn the bog-standard form into an engaging conversational experience. And if we've learned one thing over the years, it's that this approach gets you much higher-quality responses. When it comes to personal references, this means you're more likely to get to know a candidate better.

This typeform will help people structure a reference letter, by asking them specific questions—one at a time.

2. What questions should I ask in a personal reference form?

Think about what you're really interested in. Is it a candidate's values, communication skills, whether or not they will get your jokes from The Office? Ask one question at a time, and keep it specific. Then, follow up on their answers by asking for examples. Anyone can say someone's a 'people-person', but how can they validate that?
