When preparing your resume, it makes sense to compile a list of references as well. Think about 3-5 people who know you well and can speak to your abilities and talents. Be certain to ask these individuals if they would be willing to serve as references prior to including their names on your reference list.
Please visit the following resources for more information on preparing a reference list.
