    Request a reference with an email link
  3. The eRefernce request is then added to your eResources, and generates a link which you can copy and paste into an email, which you send to your referee in request of a reference. It's important to send this email from your own inbox so that you can inlcude a personalized message. The link will look something like this: http://successore.com/reference?r=NDR8Nz472211dd. It's encoded to ensure each eReference request link is unique.

  5. Once your referee has completed their reference, your eReference is ready to be included in your eResume™. Successore.com will email you a notification to let you know when someone has completed a reference request. When you receive the email, log back into your Successore.com account, and display the reference to viewers. To do this, select the "edit" link next to the reference, and check the "Display to Viewers" checkbox.
