					How to write a reference page for a resume

When you have taken the time to write a resume that you are proud of, you
will probably want to know how to write a reference page for a resume
that will best reflect the unique qualities that you are able to bring to
this job. There really is no secret to writing a reference page, but
there are some basic rules that you should follow.

When learning how to write a reference page for a resume, you need to
make sure that everyone who you put on your reference page knows that you
are using them as a reference. You will want to have a diverse group of
references that include professional references as well as personal
references so that you can give your potential employer a great idea of
who you are and what you are capable of.

There really is no magic formula that can teach you how to write a
reference page for a resume. But there are some guidelines that you
should follow. First, as we have mentioned before, be sure all of your
references know that they are being put down as a reference for you. You
should include all contact information on your reference page for the
people who will be vouching for you. If your potential employer wants to
contact your references, they need to be able to actually contact them.
Make sure that the contact information you have for your references is up
to date and current.

When you are trying to learn how to write a reference page for a resume,
you should always include your name and contact information at the top of
the reference page. After that, you should list the people who will be
your references along with their contact information. Some people like
to include a line that says why you are including them as a reference
such as “This is my student teaching supervisor” or “This is my
professorial mentor”.

It is a good idea to take and center all of the information in the middle
of the page when you are trying to learn how to write a reference page
for a resume. You should, of course, include your own contact
information at the top of the page to begin with. Then, after that, list
the people who will vouch for you as well as your abilities.
