Today Dr. Curry offers insight into how to deal with revealing information gained through reference checks.

"We recently advertised for a hard-to-fill position in our company. We made an offer to the top candidate prior to completing his reference checks. He accepted, and now we’re worried. Several of his references describe him as arrogant, abrasive and a superstar who believes his own press releases and doesn’t care who he ticks off.
