Most professionals recommend against submitting your references with your resume, and we agree with this advice. The goal of your resume is to get you an interview, and it is at the interview that you should supply references when asked.
But, if you have great written references such as references letters or performance reviews, it is possible to create a standout resume with references while holding back the actual contact information for your references. The resume template in our Credalise Collection makes this easy!
This eye-catching resume template includes space to include excerpts of your most impressive references. Social “proof” such as a written reference highlighting your strengths and most important accomplishments can be powerful. Including these excerpts can make all the difference in persuading the hiring manager to pick up the phone and call you for an interview!
Once you are at the interview, use the references dossier template included in the optional Credalise Collection coordinating documents bundle to provide full details on your references, along with information on how the hiring manager can contact them.
The layout and format of the Credalise resume template presents an eye-catching and highly professional image to impress the hiring decision-makers for the job you most want. But beyond eye appeal, like all our resume templates, this resume with references is ATS friendly too.
