Choose people who know you well and can speak to your accomplishments, passion and character. Big names or famous people will not make your application stronger as our goal is to get to know you and your work better. We strongly encourage you to avoid asking partners or family members for references, unless you work together professionally.
Make sure to notify your references before listing them on your application and to provide us with correct contact information. We reserve the right to contact them at any point during the application process, and their failure to respond may weaken your application.
