Reference Seekers

How many references may I seek for any one opportunity?
RUR has the capacity to handle as many requests as you deem necessary. Most employers require 3-5 references.
What should I do if my references have not responded to my request?

Reference Submitters

Does the website provide reference letter templates?

Can I recall my letter of reference, make any adjustments and re-submit...or not resubmit ?
Yes you can make changes to your letter at any point after you've submitted your original letter. Simply go to your member page, and click the reference you submitted.
