Original cast is on this page: https://www.manager-tools.com/2008/07/sharing-your-references

Can anyone help clarify a couple of how-to items I'm muddy on, even after reviewing the podcast on sharing references? They mostly center on the question of whom the 8 references are intended for. Is it my curated list to select from for each job, or is it a well-prepped team of champions ready to speak on my behalf?

  1. Do I print a references document and then bring it to the interview to hand the hiring manager? 
  2. Do I give all 8 references to the hiring manager, or do I select the few that are most relevant?

Depending on the answer here, I think it affects how (and how many) I prepare the references ahead of time.

Many thanks!
