I'm applying to companies for work placements (as part of my college course) at the moment.
I received a letter of reference from my boss during my (relevant) summer job. It's a great reference, and I'd like to include it somehow in my job applications - is this wise?
I'll be applying by email for these jobs, so could I scan the letter of reference and attach it with my CV, or should I wait until asked for a reference before providing one? At the moment, my CV has the names and details of two referees (one of them is the person who wrote the letter), but I could change it to "References available on request" if needs be.
