Believe it or not, this makes all the difference in the world when it comes to getting hired.
Yes, you have an amazing resume, and you’ve interviewed really well. As a matter of fact, I really think you are a good fit for the position. But with as many candidates interviewed for the same position today, I need something more.
To hire you, I need some really good references from you.
Your previous supervisor can’t give me the information I need when I call because he still works there and it’s a violation of their company’s policy.
(I know this, I worked in Human Resources, remember?)
So you’ve given me ‘The Work Number’ or some equivalent that will verify your previous employment and whether you are re-hirable. That’s the standard these days with so many companies looking out for THEIR best interest. What about you? You were great at your last job but how can you prove it?
What I would like to see are some strong references from you to not only verify that you did what you say you did in your last job, but prove it!
Traditionally, Professional Reference Pages were available only upon request. That should be a myth these days with so many viable candidates applying for the same job. Remember, the effort you exert on your cover letter, resume AND reference page WILL tell a recruiter or hiring manager that YOU are the right candidate for the job. That YOU are serious about employment with company XYZ.
A Professional Reference Page That Works For You will stand out above all others.
How do you truly get hired above all others when so many are competing for the same position?
