When you do land a new job, make sure you let your job references know.
Thank them for the good job reference and keep them posted on the progression of your career.
In todays market place, you may need to call on your job
references again. Today's research shows we will all have at least 5 careers.
To avoid burning out your job references, do not call them about every job opportunity you are pursuing. If a specific position is very important to you, however, call
your job references and provide details about the opportunity and what kind of person the company wants to hire highlighting your skills and experience as appropriate.
Actual Quote from Former Employers:
We are calling as I have you down as a reference regarding ------ ------.
"Are you certain he gave you my name?"
