Some people do not list references/referees at the end of their CV, and simply quote
references are available on request. This is more convenient to me for two reasons:
Normally, no reference is contacted without permission, so, it is not necessary to be included in the CV.
Depending on the purpose (application, proposal), you may want to introduce other references (more relevant to that application). This is the reason that some job applications need separate list of references.
On the other hand, including famous persons as references shows your connections and background. In addition, the audience might be suspicious why hiding possible references!
Which one is preferred and more reasonable?
