List of References
You’ll need a list of three references if you are graduating this year and seeking an entry-level job. Some employers will request it and you’ll be ready. Bring a copy to interviews — along with an unofficial copy of your transcript and of course, your resume.
Interns and co-ops — it’s unlikely you’ll be asked for a list of references. There are however, some research-related opportunities that will require it. Watch individual postings for details.
How to choose references?
Choose those who know you well — a mixture of faculty, internship or co-op supervisors, or community contacts. Once you have their permission, add them to your list. Provide each reference with a copy of your resume and a note of thanks. Employers will typically check your references by phone.
