Should I Name my References on my Resume?

No. As you progress through your career training program, begin to think about who your references will be when you begin job hunting.

Create a Reference Sheet that is separate from your resume and includes:
- Name of the person
- Title of the person
- How long you have known the person
- Contact information - Share best way to contact if you know. eg email or phone.
- Preferred time to contact

1. Ask permission BEFORE listing someone as a reference in a job search.

2. Share your resume with the person who will give you a reference.

3. Some professionals that can provide impressive references for a student in vocational training or career education program include:

Internship supervisors
Job Shadow supervisors
Practicum managers
Previous employers
Externship coordinators
Church leaders
Career Training Program Administrators
Professionals in the field
Family and friends
