Award-Winning Resume Writing Services

References Sheet Sample

Purpose: To bring to interviews as a leave-behind when you are asked for your references

Quick Tips for Writing a References Listing:

The document below is an example references listing in the format to be brought to interviews with you and left when asked for your references. Never send your references with your resume. Always wait until the interview. We recommend that you include at least six references who will be able to comment on various aspects of your career, your strengths, and your accomplishments. Make certain to always ask the people before including them on your references sheet! This is important. A good way to phrase the question is to say “Would you be willing to serve as one of my references, and if so, do you feel you would be able to give me a good reference?” Rather than just listing names and numbers, it is a good idea to include a few sentences indicating the relationship you have with the person and what he or she may be able to comment on.

This example references listing is just a sample to show the quality and style of our work. Every job search document we write is different and the resumes and other documents that we write for you will be as unique as you are and customized and personalized to your needs.

I wanted to let you know I have accepted a new position as an account manager with Xxxxx. I definitely believe the custom written resume and cover letter made the difference. It got me the interview, actually multiple interviews, and the position I was offered matched my work history and background extremely well. I am very excited to start my new job and feel very thankful to have such a wonderful opportunity in these challenging times. Thanks again to you and your team. I will definitely recommend your services to my friends and family.

This is just a short note to let you know that I have been offered the position of Director of Educational and Administrative Technology for the XXXX XXXX XXXX...Feedback from some of the members of the selection committee revealed that they were "blown away" by the resume. Actually, they only had me in for a single interview. This leads me to believe that this particular employer took great credence on the ability of the resume to communicate in my absence. I consider your work very instrumental in both the success of landing the job, and in the ability to successfully assert a salary requirement that is significantly higher for this particular area of the country...You can be sure that you are a permanent part of my electronic rolodex. If anyone ever needs a top-quality resume, you can be sure that your name will be mentioned.

While I did not know quite what to expect and was further worried about the material you had to work with, I found my resume draft to be the brightest light in my week...as advertised, "Distinctive Documents". I have never seen any other medical resume so uniquely done. Thank-you. I am amazed that you were able to take some of my answers and create such a wonderful piece of work..I almost didn't recognize myself!!!
