References and Recommendation Letters

References are professionals who can speak to your skills, strengths, and qualifications. Some examples of professionals who may provide references for you are:

  • Employers/Supervisors
  • Internship Supervisors
  • Research Advisors
  • Faculty Members
  • Co-workers

Remember to provide references that are relevant to the job you are applying for; people who will be able to speak to your skills and qualifications for the type of work you will be performing.

References should be listed on a separate page from your resume. Include your resume heading with your name and contact information, then list your references.
