Once you have finished your resume and cover letter you must create a Reference page.

Here are a few tips:

  • Use the same format for your cover letter, resume and reference page (font size, font type, header, etc.)

  • Choose three people that you think would say positive things about you (this could be a current boss, former boss, teacher, neighbour, etc.)

  • Always ask the person if they would be a reference for you before you put his or her name down

  • Ask the reference for contact information that you can put down on your reference page

  • Try not to use family as references

  • Information needed is the person's name, position at work (if applicable), relationship to you (eg. former Science teacher), contact information (phone number)

  • You should have 2 to 3 references
