List of References

Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. In today's tutorial, we will discuss how to set up a page of references in case you are asked to submit your references for a potential employer. On your CV, you may list some references. After you've acquired some experience, it is absolutely normal to leave the references off of the CV for space concerns. You may instead insert a line that says, "References available upon request", or no information about references at all. I have not included any line regarding references on my own CV since I have very rarely been asked to provide any references. In cases where I have been asked, it has been for a hospitality position in which I have to fill out, in addition to submitting my CV, a separate application on which I do need to provide a list of references directly on the application.

Steps

  1. 1
    If we do need to create a separate page for our references, our contact information should be at the top.
    It should match our CV in style, and should include our name, address, phone number and email.

    We can have a few different types of references.
    This could include a current or former teacher or an employer, which would be a professional reference. We can even ask a friend who is familiar with our knowledge, our skills and our abilities in order to do the job.

    We do need to confirm with these people that they are okay with providing a reference for us, and then we will need to get some information about them.
    Information that we will need includes their full name (first and last), their professional title, as well as their company.

    We may need to add the specific dates that we have known them.
    For instance, the dates that we took a teacher's class, the dates we were working for a certain employer, or simply how long we have known a friend.

    Then we will need to provide a mailing address.
    This can be the mailing address of the company at which this person is employed. It does not need to be a home address.

Steps

  1. 1
    The purpose of listing our interests or hobbies are to let an employer know more about us.
    These can be completely unrelated to the job. It conveys a greater sense of personality.

    This is more typically found in Europe, and not as common in the United States.
    I do have interests and hobbies listed on my CVs both for Europe, as well as in the United States. I don't believe that submitting my interests in the United States has ever prevented me from getting an interview somewhere.

    How do we list our interests?
    We can list them as bullet points, as we are showing in this demonstration. We have a single interest for each point that we make.

    The idea is to give a prospective employer a greater sense of the type of person that you are.
    It's much easier to gauge a person's personality if you know what they are interested in. Since many employers are hiring largely based on personality, I personally feel that it can be an advantage to include some of your interests on your CV. It does not have to be a very long section. It can be as simple as one line. This concludes today's tutorial on preparing your CV or resume, and listing your interests or hobbies.
