Employers may request a CV when you apply for jobs as a summary of your professional and academic qualities and achievements. A list of references in your CV is one approach to convey additional information about yourself to potential employers. Employers may contact your references to see whether you are a suitable fit for the job, so consider whether having references would benefit you and increase your chances of being hired.

If you add references to your CV, they should be from professionals who can attest to your abilities, character, and work performance. If you know three to five people who can provide useful information about you, you may want to add them to a reference list on your CV to help employers notice your qualifications. However, whether or not you submit references depends on the position you’re applying for, and what the employer requires in your application.

When adding references to your CV, use professionals that have an unbiased judgment of your work performance. Similarly, the people you provide as references must have a prior professional relationship with you. Here are a few specific people who would be excellent references for your CV:

  • Previous and current employers
  • Managers and team leaders
