    Default How do I format a list of references to give to my HR professional interviewing me?

     

    Is there a certain template, format? What information do I include? Thanks in advance, greetings! =)

    I put my list of references into Microsoft Word in two columns.

    Here is what I include
    Their full name and the first name they go by
    Their home address
    Their City, state, ZIP code
    Their telephone number
    Their e-mail address
    Relationship to me (ie, former supervisor at what location), and how long I've known them.

    I list 3 personal and 3 professional references. For the professional references I use co-workers, not supervisors.

    There's no "standard" template but you can get something that looks pretty decent from http://office.microsoft.com. Click on Templates then search for References and browse through their templates. They're free but you do need Microsoft Word to use them. You'll definitely want to include the reference's name, company, relationship to you (supervisor, co-worker, personal reference, etc but don't get into the personal relationships, just say "personal"), years known, phone number, and email address. Mailing addresses aren't really critical these days unless you're getting a background check done so whether or not you include that is up to you. Don't give too many references--- I usually include 2 business and one personal.
