You have been asked to give a reference and you may be wondering if it is worth it.
The answer is simple: Yes, your reference is valuable.
After all, other people's opinions are becoming more and more important. Compare references with reviews of hotels, restaurants, degree programmes or healthcare institutions. Nowadays, they increasingly influence our choices. This is also the case in the job market. REFQ wishes to stimulate this development, as we believe that people are more than just a CV. Your reference gives insight into what the subject is like in practice and contributes to their personal reference portfolio. Every extra reference makes their profile more effective, as it gives them more opportunities to present themselves to potential employers or clients and secure suitable jobs/assignments.
