Choosing Effective References

Your references –people who know your skills and abilities – are a crucial part of your marketing strategy. Your references should be people who:

Know you well enough to be able to answer specific questions about your character, skills and work ethics

Can recommend you for this Bursary without reservations

Have good communication skills, especially on the phone as the steering committee could follow up with references by phone

Who should you ask to provide a personal reference or write a character reference letter for you? Certain situations require character reference letters of a more personal nature, such as character testimonials or references for a position in non-business organizations such as councils, clubs, or societies. Neighbours and acquaintances may be willing to write a reference for you. Business acquaintances, professors/academic advisors, customers, and vendors can all make good references. If you volunteer consider using leaders or other members of the organization as personal references.

Be specific when you ask people to write letters of reference. Provide information about where to send letters. Tell your references why you need the letter and give them information about the bursary application. Let your references know what knowledge, skills and experience you want to emphasize. Their letters should confirm and support what you say in your application. If possible, show them the application form.

Always ask the writer if it would help to provide them with a draft. Always send a card or email to thank the people who provide you with letters of reference.
