I am in Calgary and have my first ever interview with an Oil&Gas Co.
I've been asked for a "copy of two professional references". This raised a flag for me after the call ended. I'm reading that as saying they want two reference LETTERS. Is this right?
I have never been asked for reference letters before, and didn't think anyone did that anymore (and I work in HR!)
Am I reading this correctly?
Also, can I assume they will followup with a phone call to said references, and perhaps ask for phone numbers of additional references? I was always taught to never believe what I read on paper, and that was why those reference letters were useless.
