Our experience (and concluded from Client feedback over 22 years) is that Clients don't place much emphasis on pre-arranged references as they are often written under subjective circumstances (e.g.: from a friend or colleague or even to avoid a Labour dispute...).
So, with Client inputs, we created a hard-hitting “Skills Reference” functionality (and page) on your Profile. You simply enter the email address of the suitable Referee who can attest to your PARTICULAR SKILL(S) and the Referee quickly and simply completes the reference and clicks. It requires 1 minute of their time!
It’s important that the Referee can credibly rate your particular skill(s) by virtue of having evidenced your skills or performance. Clients want to see how well rated you are ‘per skill’.
Note: are you really a Client (employer, buyer or hirer of candidates or flexi-workers)? If not ie.: if you are seeking a job or flexi-work, then you must NOT sign up as a Client but rather as a Candidate, Independent Contractor, Consultant or Freelancer
