This is one sample of a reference page. Remember, use three to five complete references and always attach a reference sheet with a resume-- don't wait for a prospective employer to request one.


Note: Putting "REFERENCES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST" at the bottom of a resume is like putting a period at the end of a sentence–it tells the reader, "The end."

NEVER hand out your resume NOR send out your resume without accompanying a page of references. This tells the reader that you are a step ahead of others and ready to get the ball rolling!

By the way, make certain that your references receive an updated copy of your resume BEFORE you start using them as a reference!


Proverbs 27:17, “Iron sharpens iron!”
