RULE 18: Please check with those that you are listing as a reference before giving out there name and number.  Might be a good idea to make sure that they will give you a good reference.  If you were escorted out the door, might not want to list former co-worker that you worked closely with and that basically supervised you since supervisors were located off campus.   

Yea, I just got a text the other day that someone listed me as a reference.  Hoping that I do not get a phone call.  Will just send the caller to HR.

Be sure to keep your references updated.  I recently found out one of my references was dismissed from the university for some insubordinate activities.  I promptly removed her from my references.  Make sure the phone numbers for your references are current.

addendum: if this is the norm in your area/business!

Although this may be a "US-based" site, please note that "thank you notes" not only are not expected in some places, but may be even be viewed negatively.

Really?  I had no idea--where would that be?

I'm rather curious even though I don't have any plans to leave the country.

The UK, for one.

A 'thank you for your time' email reiterating your interest in the position may be acceptable here *if* you dealt directly with the company's recruitment process and weren't placed at interview through an agent (if this is the case, you don't contact the company direct; all communications are done through the agency) but a thank you note on paper or even worse still a card would have you viewed as creepy and over-familiar and probably get you struck off the list of possibles.
