OK to Ask Reference for Multiple Reference Letters?


Dear Experts,

When asking for reference letters, how do you obtain multiple copies without being a nuisance to references when applying to multiple jobs? In other words, how do you get multiple copies from one reference? Do you get specialized letters?

Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter:

Q#374 Copies are fine, keep original to show; also can provide multiple copies 2 ref for orig signature. (@juliaerickson)

Q#374 If you can, ask for specialized letters. These really stand out, but are much more work for your reference. (@gradversity)

Q#374 Provide photocopies. If U R conducting a targeted #jobsearch then that reference letter can be used more than once. (@resumeservice)

Q#374 Most people have some sort of access to a copier. I just copied mine multiple times when needed. (@beneubanks)
