Sometimes the job application will indicate how many #references you need. If you're unsure, aim for three quality references. Here's how to approach picking your references:

  1. Determine the type of role you're looking for
  2. Consider individuals you may know at the company
  3. Identify connections between your network and someone who works at the company

Did you know you can make connections right here on Jobcase? Go to a users' profile and click "Connect" -- this is a great way to build your professional network. #connections #jobsearch

Three with first hand knowledge of your work. Knowing you for some time. No friends!

I think it's always a good idea to have at least 3 references: 1 Manager, 2 Coworkers.
