Is character reference needed in Resume?
While it’s okay to add references to your resumes, it’s highly unlikely that it’ll do your resume any good. If you should put in your character references, they should always appear on a separate page. Remove the References: Available Upon Request line from your resume because it’s understood that you will.
Who can do a character reference for housing?
A rental reference (or referral) is a ‘vote of confidence’ from someone who knows you in a personal, financial, educational, professional, or prior rental experience capacity. Ideally, your rental reference will know you well enough to speak to your character and know how to express it to a property owner/agent.
What will your references say about you?
Your references should talk about your strengths in specific situations — not just basic information. They should be ready to provide examples of actual projects where you exceeded expectations. Your reference should easily cite one or two situations that highlight your strengths.
