I've had several job interviews recently. Typically, the potential employer will ask for a page listing some specified number of individual references. I have no problem adding quality contacts to this page.
However, I'm wondering how I can make the best use of this page. Typically I include only basic information: my own contact information, as well as the name, job title, and contact information of my references.
I've been wondering if it would be helpful to include additional information such as a short sentence describing how I know the contact. I imagine this could be useful to the potential employer, as they would know what kinds of questions that person could answer well. For example:
Dr. X, Lab Manager, University of Atlantis.
Dr. X is a frequent customer of my service and is familiar with the quality of services I provide.
Would this, or any other kind of information, strengthen the value of my references page?
