While some resumes may not have room for references, with a resume for an electrician, they should always be included. Because training and electrical skills are so important, make sure to put people that can vouch for your skills and performance.
By having the references right on the resume, if the employer is interested, they can call and get you started on the job immediately. Employers hate the generic term, “Available upon request” when it dealing with references.
