Resume Writing  


Ways to use references?

A reference is someone who knows you, is familiar with your personal and professional skills, and who is willing to share their impression of you with a prospective employer. Your references shouldn't be relatives or personal friends.

Possible references are: Past bosses or co-workers Teachers, principals, guidance counselors Leaders of volunteer organizations or clubs

Plan on having at least three references. You can either include your references on your resume, or note that they're available on request.

You'll need to provide the following reference information to the employer:

  • Reference name
  • Relationship to you (teacher, supervisor, etc.)
  • Job title and company name
  • Day/time
  • phone number
  • Address

Be sure to ask your references for permission to use their names--that's standard business etiquette.
