Reference

I'm living in neighbouring country and am planning to apply for jobs in Singapore.
Is it a norm here to check reference? Esp for entry-level position.

Thanks.

Re: Reference

Yes they ask for reference.

No, none of the reference I provided was ever called up.

K.

I do inform the people that I use as reference in the event that reference are being checked.

Re: Reference

Just put your previous boss or colleagues as reference and inform them about it..Usually they wont call them up..

Re: Reference

yes, normally they won't call, but if putting their names on the resume for the job that you are applying for, will look better. than 1 which doesn't have any ref
