A reference page is a list of individuals who can address your employment
skills. It should be developed for your work search and forwarded to potential
employers at the appropriate time. Many employers ask for references at
the time they request a completed application and/or at the conclusion
of the interview process. Only submit your references when a bona fide
employer has requested them.
Your reference page should use the same heading information and lay out
as used on your resume. This is important because this document may become
separated from the application packet. A heading traditionally includes
your name, address, phone number(s) and e-mail address.
A minimum of three references is needed. Additional references may be
used. Select people who can address :
- your marketable skills in your speciality
- your positive attributes as an employee
- your character
- your ability to learn quickly and adapt to change
Consider asking faculty members, employers and people who work in the
industry to be a reference for you.
Traditionally, the following information is included for each of your
- Name, Title
- Company Name
- Complete Business Address
- E-mail Address
