Who to use as your job references?

Posted on October 12, 2017 at 11:39 am

When it comes to applying for a new job, there are a few checks that your new employer will need before giving you a contract to sign.

Your CV should not only provide an in-depth statement regarding why you are right for the role, it should include relevant qualifications, extra courses and any volunteer work too. At the bottom of every CV there should be a section for references, this could be written ‘references available on request’ or you could list two to three references.

When it comes to selecting who to have as your references, it is always recommended to use your most recent manager as your professional reference and a professional work colleague or long term friend as a character reference. Giving a professional and character reference is the vest way for your future employers to get the best insight into your personality and you as a professional.
