How to List References on a Resume

Kent Nolen

Q: How do I handle putting references on my resume?

A: In most cases you don't need to mention references on your resume. In fact, you don't even need to state "References available upon request." Besides, isn't that sort of an absurd statement to include? Think about it. Your resume is valuable real estate and employers know – and they know that you know – that you'll come up with references if they ask you to. So don't waste the space.

If an employer chooses to conduct reference checks, they'll ask for this information at some point during the interview process.
