Writing a Resume > References

References or statements such as "References on request" are no longer included on the resume (it is presumed by employers that you have references). Instead, prepare a REFERENCE LIST that includes the names, addresses, and phone numbers of your references. This list should have the same paper, font and header as your resume.

In addition to a reference list you may also supply written letters of reference when requested. If you would like the convenience of having your letters copied and sent out at your request, you may establish a Credentials File for your reference letters at the Career Resource Center. By using this service you avoid having to repeatedly request separate letters from your recommenders.
