Which is best for a CV?|
- Work Experience
- Employment History
- Career Summary
Is "References available upon request" acceptable?
I can't get a response from the head office of my employer in Taiwan regarding references. I want to apply for things. I asked them over a month ago and last week.
I use Employment History. I think that would be fine for the references, to go on your CV, but most jobs I've applied for have had a form with spaces for specific references. It might be bad etiquette, but I've just put my former employers down without asking, I guess because if you hire someone then unless they're dreadful it's expected.
Thanks for this. Sorry for the late reply.
It was more about selecting an individual from the company I worked for. My boss - the owner of the franchise school I worked at - has a weak command of English. For example, "You know my means?" and "I give you the suggest." I didn't want him to write my reference so I asked my direct line manager who's only just replied to my e-mail.
Hope all is well with you. x
I currently have my two PhD supervisors as references, and 'additional references (including current employer) available upon request' as a tagline... basically because I don't want my current employers to know that I'm looking for new work, but I anticipate that a prospective employer may wish to talk to them at some point.
Thanks. Sorry for the late reply.
Good idea but I don't have a current employer. SAD FACE. Well, I quit my job. I wasn't sacked. HAPPY FACE.
Very enlightening and beneficial to someone whose been out of the circuit for a long time.
