How many papers should be in a literature review?
Maybe as a very rough and ready rule of thumb 8-10 significant pieces (books and/or articles) for a 8,000 word dissertation, up to 20 major pieces of work for words, and so on. But use your judgement! Skim through the books and articles identified as potentially relevant.
How many sources should a paper have?
Usually 3-4 reliable sources should be sufficient. This should be enough external information to complement your original thoughts/ideas. With too many sources, the essay becomes a compilation of opinions from other writers instead of your own.
Should I use my current boss as a reference?
Most employers will ask for references later in the interview process – after they have decided you are worth considering further. However, sometimes employers do ask for references in their job posting. If so, it is fine to omit your current employer.
How do you let your references know they will be contacted?
When you give out references to a company, as soon as possible (that day), send your references an email (or call them), let them know who you gave their name to, the company and what the position is you are applying for.
Do employers call or email references?
Essentially, yes. While it’s true that not 100% of Human Resources (HR) departments will call your references during pre-employment screening, many do. The references you provide to employers may be contacted about your employment history, qualifications, and the skills that qualify you for the job.
