  • Use a list of 3 to 5 professional references.

  • Make sure you ask permission from a reference before putting his/her name on your reference sheet.

  • Give the reference a copy of your resume.

  • Always include the reference‚Äôs title.

  • Examples of references include former employers, professors, a co-worker, a coach or an advisor.

  • Do not send references with your resume. Take your reference sheet to the interview.

  • If an employer asks if they can call your references, let your references know that they may be called. Tell them the name of the person calling and the job for which you applied. If possible, give them a copy of the job description.
