So my dad lost his job, story is up in the air on what really happened on why (my bets are couldnt keep it in his pants, yep really) but since I'm the daughter and the fact that my mom is disiabled and I REALLY don't want them living with me I am helping him with his resume. I have fully updated it , however. I am unsure of the printing. He has only had 7 jobs since 1988. It is a 2 page resume, do I print it front to back? 2 seprate pages and staple it? paper clip ? attach letters of reference?

2 separate pages,and staple them together.

Don't attach letters of reference.When/If he is called for an interview then he can go with a separate sheet of his references and the letters.If you are uncomfortable leaving them out,then just write "References available on request"

Everything this, except the "references available upon request." I read recently on Yahoo that it is a dated phrase that employers no longer want to see. I just took it off mine. :)

I *think* because it's just extra reading for them and only absolutely necessary stuff should be on the resume, even though it's only 4 little words. If they want references, they'll ask.

I know,but some people are uncomfortable with leaving it completely out.I think they are afraid it makes them look shady?
