I am going fo ran interview tinight and would like to have a list of my references if they ask for them. What would be the best way to list them?

Have them on a separate paper. Don't put them on the Resume.

I don't put references on a resume itself. I list them seperately and provide them only if requested.

Didn't think you list refrences on a resume, I've always only put past work experiances.

Refrences are given later should they ask for them.

I only would list references directly related to previous work on the actual resume.

non-related references would go seperately

On a separate sheet with full contact information. Also, you need to explain why the opinion of these people should even be considered.

I also have personal and professional ones grouped together.

I understand not listing them on the resume. I meant to say what would be a good format for them?

Name:
Company
Address
PH#
Relation:

Something like that?

Sorry I wasnt clear. I am a little nervous about this it would be a pretty big step up for me if I get the job. It would be about a 15K a year increase. Then I would be able to affors a platinum membership.

The line should say "Available upon request."

Have them handy for interviews and such.

I'd just give the references out with the resume.

I don't see any reason to make them request references.

That would be fine I would think. If they are going to your refrence sheet you should be in good enough shape that they aren't going to be pickey about the way it is orginized. (Unless if you do it in crayon or something.)

This is how you do it. Don't try to "fatten" your resume by putting contacts on it.

You don't even need that. All employers know that references are available if needed.

I have always been told to do the opposite of what most are saying...

Provide the References on a separate sheet of paper after your resume.

That way, if they are serious about you, it is one less hassle for them to contact you and get the references - they already have them.

People figure, well I don't want them to bother my references.... The thing is though, they are not going to call your references unless they would have requested them anyway.

Your format for listing them is fine. Just include persons title if it is pertinent (i.e. Principal, Senior Programer, Project Manager, ect.)
