Separate Your References From the Rest of Your Resume

Many employers are eager to read a list of professional references when a job candidate is applying or interviewing for a position. But they prefer them to be submitted on a separate sheet from the resume itself. However, keep the documents consistent in appearance so they look good together and provide a seamless flow from one to the other by using the same font and paper.
