Should I include references in my resume?

References and Resumes

References should be included in a document separate from your resume and should only be furnished upon request.

Even including a line that explains that references will be furnished upon request is unnecessary and wastes valuable space.

Employers assume that you will be able to supply references, and a prospective employee that refuses to do so will probably not be hired.
