With references, less is more

by on
in Hiring,Human Resources

When submitting a list of references to a potential employer, don’t overdo it. Resist the urge to present a long, seemingly impressive list of people for the hiring manager to call. Why? The more people you provide as contacts, the more likely one of them might give you a “good, but” reference. It’s smarter to limit your list of references to only those individuals who you’re sure will give the most glowing or substantive praise.
