REFQ specialises in obtaining references. We started by gaining references via personal interviews upon request by employers. We offer this service under the name REFQ Executive (www.refqexecutive.nl).
Since our establishment in 2014, we have conducted many hundreds of in-depth interviews with referees and we can rightfully claim to have made the procurement of references into a fully fledged profession.
Two major developments in society were the main driving force behind the development of a reference tool for professionals.
Firstly, the trend that other people's opinions are increasingly important nowadays. After all, reviews are a major factor in our buying decisions. This is particularly the case for selecting hotels, books or restaurants. This trend is also increasingly applicable in the job market.
In addition, both permanent and interim professionals are increasingly taking back control of their careers from their employers. And in today's competitive market, it is essential that you create a clear and distinctive profile and make it as visible as possible. There is also a growing trend for people to showcase their lives, such as showing off our personal, sporting and professional achievements via social media.
We have combined these two developments. Based on the motto 'Make your references work for you', we have condensed all of our knowledge and experience into a reference tool that allows professionals to obtain, manage and share references. Every extra reference makes your profile more effective and valuable and allows you to clearly distinguish yourself.
Getting references has never been so easy and fun. We hope you enjoy using our tool to boost your career!
