Check To make sure your references are up to date
Whenever you start a new job hunt, contact each of your previous references and contacts and make sure that they are still available to be used as a reference. If they do not answer or get back to you, don’t use them as a reference, and create a new list. There are few things more damaging when a recruiter cannot get in touch with a reference for a candidate, or if the number or email address is incorrect. So before sending over the list, make sure all the phone numbers and email addresses are functional and up to date. If you’re unsure of who to even use as a reference, we posted a great blog post about the pharmacy job search and finding contacts and references, although it’s a little bit more pharmacy centric, the main points of the post ring true for any industry.
