How to write a reference page for a resume
When you have taken the time to write a resume that you are proud of, you will probably want to know how to write a reference page for a resume that will best reflect the unique qualities that you are able to bring to this job. There really is no secret to writing a reference page, but there are some basic rules that you should follow.

When learning how to write a reference page for a resume, you need to make sure that everyone who you put on your reference page knows that you are using them as a reference. You will want to have a diverse group of references that include professional references as well as personal references so that you can give your potential employer a great idea of who you are and what you are capable of.

There really is no magic formula that can teach you how to write a reference page for a resume. But there are some guidelines that you should follow. First, as we have mentioned before, be sure all of your references know that they are being put down as a reference for you. You should include all contact information on your reference page for the people who will be vouching for you. If your potential employer wants to contact your references, they need to be able to actually contact them. Make sure that the contact information you have for your references is up to date and current.

When you are trying to learn how to write a reference page for a resume, you should always include your name and contact information at the top of the reference page. After that, you should list the people who will be your references along with their contact information. Some people like to include a line that says why you are including them as a reference such as "This is my student teaching supervisor" or "This is my professorial mentor".

It is a good idea to take and center all of the information in the middle of the page when you are trying to learn how to write a reference page for a resume. You should, of course, include your own contact information at the top of the page to begin with. Then, after that, list the people who will vouch for you as well as your abilities.
