Here's how to include referees inside your resume.

- Be sure to request permission of your referees before you nominate them in your job application.
- Keep your referees informed – they need to know what you are applying for so that they are prepared when an employer contacts them to find out more about you.
- Your current/most recent Supervisor/Manager is preferred. An Academic referee may also be suitable. Avoid personal referees.
- If possible, use Singaporean referees for a Singapore based job.
- If using an overseas referee we recommend email contact only.
