Should my letters of reference be in sealed envelopes?

Should my letters of reference be in sealed envelopes, or opened, and included with the cover letter and application?
Tanner... I don't think there's one right answer to this. If your references prefer to go the sealed envelope route (so they can feel free to be brutally honest), then you should respect that. However, since you choose who you want to write letters, I'd presume you expect to get positive letters from them. In that case, they often give it to you to read. It would be OK in those instances not to put them in sealed envelopes. You might also want to ask the employer how they prefer to get them...
To your success,
