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.

Thank you for your services and the excellent resume you produced as a result. There is no question in my mind that this distinctive resume provided me with far more opportunities to talk to recruiters and principals than I would have had otherwise. More than once I heard recruiters say "I pick out two resumes from over 1000 internet responses and you were one of them."

Bottom line I achieved exactly what I was looking for: in terms of position, location, and income AND I had choices in terms of multiple offers. It all started by getting someone to notice my resume in with a thousand others.

All of the folks I spoke to while trying to decide to use DCS and while preparing my resume and bio with DCS were just great. They are all very personable and professional and quite knowledgeable of the DCS products and services. I am happy with the resume prepared for me by Sharon Green. Her first draft only needed a few modifications to get to a completed draft. I appreciate her patient nudging to move me along in providing input to her. Also, it was so good of her to quietly listen to my description of my job duties and experience so that she could weave those tings into my resume and bio. Thank you Sharon!! I was at first very tentative about using a professional resume service. But DCS customer support personnel were very good in addressing my concerns and alleviating any anxiety I had about using DCS. In the end I feel that DCS has given me a much better resume and bio then I would have drafted myself. I am confident that the DCS product will help me greatly in obtaining another position. Friendly, professional, helpful and empathetic personnel at DCS.

I am very satisfied w/ the work Marie did; I think it was helpful the way you've designed the process -- setting expectations around deliverable dates, etc... This kept things realistic in my own mind. Resume looks great, happy with the structure and I think Marie emphasized all of the right areas as we had discussed. Just to say that in addition to Marie's frequent follow-up, I think the emails from Michelle -- even if some were system generated -- gave the process a very personal feeling. I've held off when approached by other individuals or companies when they've pitched a resume re-write, b/c the whole process felt like I was buying a used car -- your team obviously accentuates the finer points of the soft sell, which explains why Execunet works with you. Thanks for the great work.
