Although it used to be common practice to list at least two references on your resume, it’s no longer necessary in the digital age. However, if you’re actively searching for a new job, it can be helpful to proactively collect references so you’re prepared in case an employer asks for that information.
Who should my CV references be?
Make sure your references are verifiable by including contact information.
2. List previous and current employers, managers, and team leaders.
Why do companies refuse to give references?
The cost of staffing someone to provide references or having managers provide references can be costly for a company. Some companies have decided that the benefits don’t outweigh the cost.
Can a bad reference cost you a job?
A reference can show that you are not suitable for a job if it is fair and accurate. For example, a reference can show you do not have enough experience for a job or say that you were dismissed.
Can you use anyone as a reference?
They can be friends, a landlord, clients or anyone who can speak to your good personal qualities such as your honesty, dependability, good nature, etc.
2. Good personal qualities that can be spoken about to others include honesty, dependability, and good nature.
3. Anyone who knows you well can attest to your good personal qualities, such as honesty, dependability, and friendliness.
