*Your reference page should contain at least 3, but no more than 5 references. "Professional" references (people/business you've worked for) tend to carry more weight than "personal" references (neighbors, friends-people you interact with, but have never worked for).

*Space out the references so that they look centered on the page. There are three blank lines between each of these references more or less may be necessary depending on how many references you list and size of font that you use.
