MEGHAN: Good morning Ags. I’m your host
Meghan Wall and welcome to “Write Right.” Ever wonder how to get the references you
need for a job application? Well listen up because here’s a quick tip on how to do it. CINDY: And what about those references; what
if the application said that I needed references? MANDY: In that case include them on a separate
sheet at the interview. Use no more than three to five references, including at least one
academic and one work-related reference. Don’t use family members, friends, or clergy. Include
the individual’s name, job title, company name, address, email, and phone number.Always
ask permission to use people as references, and give them a copy of your resume and cover
letter. This will help them know what your goals are and not restate information that
is already on your resume. Right now is the time to be building those references that
means that you should make a good impression on current employers and professors so that
they will give you a good reference one day. MEGHAN: Well there you go. If you need any
assistance with references, just go to the Career Center located in Koldus 209 or to
the University Writing Center on the second floor of Evans library, where they have trained
staff ready to help you. Thanks for tuning in to this quick tip; I’m Meghan Wall and
we’ll see you next time on “Write Right.”
