Make a .doc copy of your resume, and save it with a file name that includes the text, "references." Keep everything that appears in the header (name, contact information, LinkedIn URL and graphics). Retain the same font and font size as your resume. Remove all body text, but retain the header of the first section, and replace the header text with the text, "References."
Below that, list your references using the following format:
Name of Reference
Job Title of Reference
Company or Organization of Reference
City, State of Organization (and Country if different from employer location)
Relationship to You
Retain the same font and font size as the body text of the resume. Separate each block of information by two line spaces, and consider using bold text for the Name of Reference. Your list of references should be no longer than one page, and in most cases include between three and five separate references. Keep a master list of all your references so you can customize them for different jobs.
