Do employers actually call references?
While it’s true that not all Human Resources (HR) departments will call your references during pre-employment screening, the vast majority do. So if you’re about to begin a job search, it’s a good idea to assume that your references will be checked.
Can you put friends as references?
Friends can make excellent professional and personal references for your job search.
2. Your friends know you well and can attest to your skills and character.
3. A friend’s reference can carry a lot of weight with potential employers.
4. When asking a friend to be a reference, be sure to give them a heads up about what kind of job you’re applying for.
5. That way, they can tailor their reference to your strengths.
Do you have to tell people you are using them as a reference?
You should always ask your former boss’s permission before listing them as a reference, and give them as much information about the jobs you’re applying for as possible. This way, they can be prepared in case they receive a call from a potential employer, and they will be more likely to give a positive recommendation.
