References & Recommendations

  • 0

Professional references are different than the type of references you might supply when filling out a rental application for housing.  While a landlord would be interested in speaking to your family friends, an employer would prefer to speak to people who have known you in a professional capacity (past supervisors, coordinators from volunteer projects, professors, etc).  The same is true when determining whom you will ask to write letters of recommendation for you.
