I have master degrees in applied math and statistics, and am looking for jobs in statistics and biostatistics. I am reading this site, which says:
In either your cover letter or C.V., list the names of your references, giving their addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses, assuming they have agreed to this. I also advise having letters of recommendation sent immediately, rather than waiting for the search committee to request this.
The same can be said of sending academic transcripts.
I was wondering if the two practices are indeed helpful?
- At what point do I need to have the references ready in general: when sending out my resume and cover letter, before interview, or after interview? I haven't figured out who will be willing to serve as my references. Nor have I contacted any professor yet. I am actually a PhD student failing my qualify exam and have to leave the program, and I am not sure how much support I will find from my professors.
- Also how about sending transcripts along with resumes? Now I only have unofficial ones, and do most employers like to have transcripts and even official ones?
