May I contact your references?

How to Use

Interviewer: May I contact your references?

Abby: Yes, you may contact my references. But please keep in mind that most of my references are living in Japan, so the time difference and English could be issues.

Interviewer: Do your references speak English?

Abby: They speak English, but most of them are not native speakers. So, there might be times when they do not completely understand a question.

Interviewer: I don't think that it will be a problem but thank you for letting me know.

Abby: No problem. Also, I already told them to expect a call from somebody from America, so they shouldn't be too surprised.

Interviewer: Great.
