Recommendations & References
Employers and education programs seeking references are typically seeking 3-5 people they may contact. These should be people who know you well enough to speak to your performance as an employee, student, athlete, musician, volunteer, etc.
When asking people to be listed as a reference for you, provide them with your current résumé, the types of places you are applying and your timeframe for applying. Do allow them the opportunity to decline being a reference for you. Find a format for listing your reference in the Résumés, Cover Letters, and Personal Branding Booklet.
