I understand when they're hiring for entry-level positions employer's still feel compelled to rely on references (a flawed construct, but I digress). At what point do prospective employer's stop asking for references? I imagine when you are hiring an executive it can get rather competitive and a high-value employee isn't going to tip-off their current employer that they are thinking of jumping ship. Put another way, I don't think a CFO looking to become CEO at another company goes to his "boss" to ask if it's ok to put him down for a reference. When do you start getting judged based on your interview alone, and not other peoples' opinion of you? Is iit age, a certain position level?
