CV templates vary but there is an expected level of standard for every job application. If you are including references in your CV, past employees or any contact that can be used to assess you, make sure that you are ready for your potential employer to reach out to the reference(s). How can you do this?
- Inform the person/organization that you are listing them as reference(s)
- Let your reference know the referral value to your employment
- Brief your reference about the potential place of employment.
Ensuring that your reference and employer have the same information can be the added bonus for a benefit in your job application. Take enough time to prepare your reference before applying for a job.
