We make it simple to create a Employment Reference Request

Sample Employment Reference Request

More than just a template, our step-by-step interview process makes it easy to create an Employment Reference Request.

Save, sign, print, and download your document when you are done.

There's a lot of competition out there. An Employment Reference Request is your formal way of asking your old employer for a reference. Maybe the position you're applying for requires it or maybe you just want to provide one to increase your odds of getting the job. Chances are that no one knows your work ethic better than former bosses so why not let them speak on your behalf? If you were a stand out at your old job you could brag about it, but it might be more effective to let your boss do it for you. Resumes and college transcripts can only say so much about you - a recommendation helps fill the gaps. Get your Employment Reference Request sent out and help yourself prepare for anything the job market can throw at you.
