How should I include references on my resume?
Choose professional references such as previous managers, professors, or former colleagues. A hiring manager does not want to hear how great you are from a friend or family member. Remember to include the reference’s name, position title, phone number, and email address.
How do I make a reference list for a job?
What to Include on a Reference ListInclude the reference’s full contact information. List their full name, title, and company in addition to their street address, phone, and email. Include your contact information. Add a title to the page. Be consistent with your formatting. Check for accuracy.
Is it OK to put references available upon request?
This line isn’t necessary. “Do not put ‘Reference available upon request’, or the names and contact points of the references themselves,” advises Elliot Lasson, executive director of Joblink of Maryland, Inc. “The former is understood, superfluous, and therefore just takes up valuable space.
What do I do if I have no references?
Call the company where your reference used to work and ask if they have new contact details. Some companies won’t give out home phone numbers. But you could ask them to call and ask your reference to get in touch with you. You could also try to find your reference on social media networks.
