Tips for Choosing Quality Job References

      Elevate your career with RPL


      The most effective referees will be individuals from your professional network who have worked closely with you. Your references should be able to attest to your abilities and provide positive details about your character.

      Hiring managers usually prefer work-related references from people you’ve worked with directly. Employers are searching for first-hand information about your experience, abilities and attitude in the workplace.

      Try to steer clear of family members, friends or acquaintances who don’t have any experience working with you. Don’t include managers or supervisors with whom you’ve had serious issues, as this could turn into a negative reference and jeopardise your chance of securing the role.

      Two references is the sweet spot, but make them good ones. It’s ideal for the employer to get the information they’re after in a couple of phone calls.
