You know that line in the movie…”are you talkin’ to ME?”
Well my dear, that’s how we feel when we read your resume and it says: References Upon Request… well no kidding!
If you’re sending your resume to me and I want more information, I’m going to call you and get that information. If I’m not interested, I don’t give a crap whether you want to provide them or not.
It’s just extra info that is understood!
The gist: I get it! It’s not necessary to put the document!
