I have a question about resume references. I recently interned at a local sound company, and I would like to add someone from said company onto my resume as a reference. However, I'm not sure what person I should choose. Is it better to use the person I worked for directly, or a higher up (someone who might be better known, but isn't as familiar with my work)?
Here's the scenario: it's a small company, with a few employees/owners who work year-round, and a couple that work full-time, but only during the summer months. As the company is small, the internships are a bit informal. The interns all reported to one of the summer employees, and most of my internship was spent working with the summer employees. However, I'm wondering if it would look better to have one of the owners on my resume.
Basically, my overall question is: is it better to list the person I worked with directly (and who knows my work best), or is it better to list someone with a more prominent position?
Thanks in advance.
