    Hi people,

    Very simple question, just want your opinions. I have reference from time in Australia, while during my gap year I worked for a law firm over there. I doubt very much that law firms are going to be chasing up those firms (well not the firms I will be applying to anyway). Do you think it would be acceptable, if a firm asks for a CV and covering letter to apply, to enclose the reference.



    Generally if you submit a CV and covering letter there's no need to sumbmit a reference there and then. Most firms seem to get references through email so it wouldn't be any more difficult to email a firm in Australia than a firm in England. I have work experience in Asia and I've put their email/number down, although I don't know if any firms have actually contacted them.

    Yes - unless specifically asked for, don't give references. You are welcome to add "References available", or something more eloquent, but don't put them on. Also, before you give that firm's details, give them a quick call to check.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
