Building A Good Reference List

Hi friends,

In this period of recession, many jobs need a good reference.
So now, In this post, I would like to emphasize on how to build a good reference list.

My points, will work wonders for you, my friends!

* Make sure the people you name as references are aware of it and are comfortable speaking on your behalf.It should not come as a surprise for them.

Before you submit a reference list to a employer, provide each contact with an updated copy of your resume and describe the company and position you've applied for.

* Consider which of your references can best discuss the qualities you possess that directly relate to the job.

Such individuals won't necessarily possess the most impressive job titles,but they might be the best to discuss your details.

* Tell the truth while you talk in your interview and also to your reference.Please remember, it will not take much time for them to analyze your information.

* Even if a reference doesn't end up speaking on your behalf, thank that person and keep him/her updated on the status of your search.

If you are hired, be sure to send a thank-you note or even a small gift to your references. Also remember to not to loose the relationships.

Keeping in touch with your references, even after you've settled into a new job, can help you maintain a solid network of professionals who can assist you in various ways throughout your career.

All the best Folks!
