I am asked often to be a reference and if i feel i can be of help to both parties, I willingly say yes. I like to see people work and I like to know I have helped an employer
add a skilled employee.
Yes I have. Got great reference from past employers
When you go to a job interview always have a list of references. And the list of references cannot be personal or related references, have to be references from past or current jobs. And there are formats online for typing up a references page. And ask permission before using them as a reference to give them a heads up so that they can be prepared to speak of your skills and qualifications as an employee. And have your contact information on your references page and be prepared to give a copy to the person interviewing you, and I would ask them if they want a copy. Also I would have your list of references in order from your most recent job to your first job from top of the page to the bottom of the page.
If you are asked to be a reference, ask what that employer is looking for so you can give an appropriate referral for your friend or former colleague.
Often and they are usually phony as long as you can get somebody to say you are gods gift to employers. In other words most of time they are useless.
