Nowadays, online tools, for instance, flow CV resume, are able to cope with most part of the boring and routine tasks, helping people a lot. That’s true for resumes, which people are obliged to make to find a new job.
Since a resume oftentimes requires additional documents attached to it (or submitted along at some stage of a job search), for instance, a reference page (RP), such online tools have been designed to cover these needs in the best possible manner. Let’s briefly overview, what is an RP, how it is composed, and how a tool on the Internet can help make it.
What is an RP & how to make a reference page for a resume?
During the process of a job search, people submit their CVs to potential employers. If the latter likes it and the process continues, then a job seeker is frequently asked to provide references to people, who could recommend the person for a new job and tell more to a future employer about them. Employers question, what the candidate did on a previous job, what he or she is like as a person (to consider work and character traits), and other things. To simplify the described process, candidates compose an RP, which contains such information:
- Names of references
- Their company names
- Their positions, addresses, phones, messengers’ contacts, e-mail addresses
- Brief description of a recommending contact: what they were in relation to a job seeker.
Such information is provided for all the contacts on the list who can give recommendations. Usually, there must be from 3 to 10 of them (but, surely, not all of them will be contacted by a potential employer in most cases). It is better to position the most important of them at the beginning of the list — those who can provide the most valuable and essential information, which ought to be maximally helpful for a job seeker. In practice, it can be a boss, supervisor, or good colleague of a person, who can highlight their positive traits. When a potential employer talks to those, finds out and positively verifies information in a resume, the chances of being employed dramatically increase. And that incredibly raises the importance of this document.
Not everybody knows, however, how to compose this document correctly and finds it difficult to complete it. Fortunately, there is an online tool, which we mentioned above, which is designed to assist and make this process as smooth and seamless as possible.
How to make a reference page for a resume using an online tool?
To start with, open the main page of the tool and select the visual template, which you’d like to use (among the given pre-made ones). All the templates look beautiful and comprehensive. This fact alone makes the work of creating this document much easier.
Then, using an intuitive visual editor, one must fulfill the information, indicating the strings of data that we’ve already mentioned in the article (name, position, address, contact data, etc.).
To promptly do this, make sure to have this information at hand. After this is completed, the only thing left to do is to save the doc in the personal cabinet to be able to convert it into a PDF file and download it. Also, as soon as it is saved in the account, one can return to it in the future, changing it when there is such a need, and updating it with new information.
