References are a critical part of the hiring process, and I have seen the strength (or weakness) of professional references influence the ultimate hiring decision.

You don’t want to scramble last-minute to collect your references when you’re in a job search. First of all, it takes time to track people down and if you wait till you’re in late stages with a company you’ll look disorganized (or worse, be disqualified) if you take too long to submit your references.
