how is one supposed to attach the list of their references to their resume?


a) staple
b) paper clip
c) glue
d) nothing
e) it doesn't really matter...

You're never supposed to staple your cover letter to your resume.. it's done with a paper clip.

and to answer your question. It doesnt' matter.

Never include your references unless it's the second interview. Just have a section on your resume stating that you can make them available upon request.

yeah, i realized after that you needn't put the letter of reference with it.



I've always been told to staple the Cover letter on, if you're stapling it all.




I think presenting your resume in this form will get you the most points.

don't use glue.

if it is a serious job.. like a career...you could always put it in a nice folder. All of it.. resume plus other things you want to include.

I dunno.

disregard my past antics. I was working at a place that was not a career type of place..but more like summer/part -time work. So I didn't care.

i always make sense... but thank you so much for your complements. I love you too.
 
A perfect reminder to double check your resume and cover letter for spelling errors and mistakes with grammar.

(I love how after the edit there's still mistakes)

Make that triple check, sen.

Actually, it's a good idea to have them on hand at the first interview.

I usually bring a copy of my resume (one for me, one for them in bcase they don't have the correct version - if they pulled it from a website from ages ago or something).

Then when we're done discussing the resume, they might ask for them. You look prepared if you can whip out a page with your references on it (name, title and company(if applicable) and contact info. Indicate whether each reference is professional or personal as you may be required to provide some of each).

In which case you'd not staple/glue/tack/clip it to anything, just hand it over for them to put in their files during the interview.

Sometimes they'd ask for them in advance, in which case send all that shit together.

But most people don't include references with the initial application UNLESS you have some kick ass reference that will make them look twice at your resume (i.e. if one of your references is the client of the company they're trying to sell product to or something).

As for attaching your cover to your resume in the initial application I'd first ask, what the fuck - use e-mail.

If they insist on receiving it via mail, then staple or clip both together. Then hope you don't get the job at a company whose processes are back in the dark ages.

I should add here that there really is no right or wrong (or stock) answer for your question.

p.s. shitpole, your responses are making much more sense after you're reading them over and fixing all the mistakes.

You cared enough to take your dick out and piss into a garbage can.

You don't. I've never given references until asked...and that's usually just before I get an offer.

Never give away your originals! You may need to use them/it again down the road.
