The secret to picking the best references for your CV 

Selecting references for your CV is not as straightforward as you think it is. Don’t just simply pick your old manager and assume that will do – as it won’t! If you want to provide a prospective employer with the greatest confidence in your ability, follow these great tips…

Choose someone who worked closely with you 

If you choose someone who you barely interacted with, you are going to make it difficult for the new employer to find out how you really performed. The only way to get a great reference is to choose someone who you worked closely with for a good amount of time. Someone that can accurately provide a great reference on your behalf is a lot better than someone who gives a generic one.

The new employer will easily spot when a generic reference has been given, which could throw doubt into your previous performance.

Speak with your reference 

Before you rush ahead and write down a reference on your CV, you need to first of all get their permission. Letting them know that you are considering them as a reference is a great way to give them a heads up, and to also double check they are happy to do so. Can you imagine if a new employer contacted your reference and they seemed a little miffed about providing one?!?

Prep your reference 

Once you’ve gotten their permission it’s now a great time to provide them with more details about your potential new role. Let them know what the new employer is looking for and what type of reference you would like them to provide. Of course, you can’t force them to give you a great reference as you want them to be honest, however you can let them know what ‘type’ of reference they could provide and what they could focus on.

There is no point in your reference providing information which is irrelevant to a potential new employer, and instead you can plan ahead by giving them a heads up as to what they are looking for and what to focus on when providing the reference.
