References

Once you have finished your resume and cover letter you must create a Reference page.

Here are a few tips:



  • Use the same format for your cover letter, resume and reference page (font size, font type, header, etc.)

  • Choose three people that you think would say positive things about you.  This could be a current boss, former boss, teacher, neighbour, etc.

  • Always ask the person if they would be a reference for you before you put his or her name down.

  • Ask the reference for contact information that you can put down on your reference page.

  • Try not to use family as references.

  • Information needed is the person's name, position at work (if applicable), relationship to you (eg. former Science teacher), contact information (phone number).

  • You should write down three references.
