TEFL CVs – The Ultimate Guide (p7)

Step 7 – References

Add two references to your CV so an employer can follow up on your application if they are interested. Normally, referees would be your two most recent employers. If this is not possible, university tutors, school teachers, or, as a last resort, a professional person outside of your family who knows you well and can vouch for your character.

PhoneteachingsmallYou should include their full name, position, company or school and email address. Email address is usually the best way to include contact details as it is cheaper for employers and it means your referee will not be put on the spot with a phone call!
