(Do You Know What Your Former Boss Will Say About You?)


The Benefits to the New Reference Format are:

  1. It allows you to further showcase your abilities and achievements with former employers, and to tie those qualifications in with the key job elements sought by prospective new employers.
  2. When offered to a potential employer — e.g. at the close of an interview — a well-crafted reference document will make a powerful and proactive statement on the job-seeker's behalf.

"Prior to losing my job, I had no idea that your service even existed. In fact, the mere thought of verifying the quality of my own references never even crossed my mind. Thank goodness, a friend referred me to your firm. The research your company did uncovered one bad reference — the reason I wasn't receiving any job offers. This information allowed me to strategically avoid this individual and successfully land the next position I interviewed for."

The traditional methods used for job-hunting are changing and the principals at Allison & Taylor have recently identified a new trend — namely, in the formatting and presentation of the reference list offered to prospective new employers.

Whereas the standard approach was to offer a simple list of references and their contact information, savvy job-seekers are now modernizing their reference lists to make a powerful statement of their qualifications for the new position.
