Do potential employers call previous employers' HR for job reference check? URGENT?
On the application, it says "I hereby give consent to xxxx to contact the above referees and my previous employers for collection/verification of my employment-related info..."
So does that mean they will find out my company's contact info and then call their HR? Or they are only allowed to call the referees that I provide?
Note - I'm currently not in the US, so I'm not sure how this is going to be processed.
