Your references are an tool that can be very helpful in securing you a new job.
Referrals and recommendations are one of the most important marketing resources you have. Although a powerful resume and cover letter are effective for gaining an employer’s interest, your references provide evidence and proof of your previous work performance from someone other than you. This is invaluable information for a future employer.
Your references need to be another document in your job search arsenal, provided as part of the interview process.
With a reference sheet prepared by Choose Your Worth Resume and Career Services you will:
- Be fully prepared to present your references in a professional manner during an interview
- Possess a document that matches the rest of your professional job search documents
- Encourage employers to take action
