“References available upon request.”
Do you have this line on the bottom of your resume?
If you do, go delete it.
Believe me, no one is concerned that you might refuse to provide references upon request. It’s assumed that you will. It’s like saying “phone calls returned upon request.”
You have that line there because at some point long ago you learned that it was the thing to do. But it’s 100% unnecessary, it’s a tiny bit dated in feel, and it’s taking up valuable space that you could use for something with more of an impact. Go take it out! It’ll be liberating, like cutting those scary “PENALTY OF LAW” tags off your mattress.
