Press/Media: Other

Description

Hiring is fraught with difficulty. Is the candidate overclaiming about their achievements? How would you know if you were about to recruit a serial plagiarist with a poor work ethic? The stock response seems to be the ritual of taking up references. As academics, we get asked to provide a reference with startling regularity by our students. But how do you write references properly and responsibly?
