May I contact your present employer for a reference?


Sure sir you can go ahead and contact them will give your their contact details.


My company is not aware that I’m looking for other opportunities, I will be gladly giving you the reference once I get selected for this job as my records are very clears.


Sure you can contact. I’m sure you will know good words about me.


Yes, with pleasure but actually I am not employed, I can give you coordinates of my professors at the university.


Yes, of course sir. You can contact them at any time.


The question for asking previous/current employer details comes only if the person taking the interview is not fully convinced with the answers provided by the candidate.

Actually, this particular question should not come up at all. How the candidate performs in an interview is the only thing what is required. Going for previous references does not serve any purpose.


No. Actually, I am here without informing my employer, so it would not be good.


Yeah, you can contact them at any time.

Similarly if you are recommending somebody in your prestigious organization you need some true and correct information about him/her.
