  • Assume your references will be checked.
  • Ask permission before listing someone as a reference.
  • Make sure your references are comfortable speaking on your behalf.
  • Keep them up to date on your accomplishments.
  • Keep your references informed - make sure they have your updated resume.
  • Choose references based on job requirements.
  • Choose references who know you and who will give you a positive recommendation - you don't want someone to say, "You're calling about whom...?"
