106 References


  Collect References as you WILL BE ASKED FOR THEM.
 
  Reach out to those at your level and above who have
  worked with you and are willing to be a reference for
  your job search. References sometimes are fraudulent
  created between the applicant and friends or family.
  This increases the screening of references and the
  importance of having them ready to present.


  Some general guidelines on references:
  1. A few require written references on their forms.
    Raise this question early in your conversations so you can prepare them
    if required whether it is on their form or a written signed letter.

  2. Confirm if copies of the reference letter are acceptable provided you can
    present the original for their inspection. Some will accept this, some won't.

  3. Some companies are comfortable with 3 references, some may want up to
    EIGHT.
