I went on my first interview after 20 years after being at the same job. She advised that she will check my references and then let me know. Does that mean I'm a step closer to getting hired. Or do i have the job.
Looking for jobs in Sacramento!
Hello, I'm looking for work in the Sacramento area. I am relocating from Indiana. I have ran and owned a cleaning business for 10 plus years, I have done personal assistant work. I sell essential oils. Make homemade beauty products. I create abstract art and just plain creative. I like business. Many references both personal and professional. Thanks Heather Motyka
What i would do?
You asked for my opinion of this topic, so here goes, if I had interviewed and reached the conclusion you seem to speak of about the person who interviewed you, then I would not mention that interview at all, because if he was factually upset with you or angry, he will most certainly not speak of you well to someone asking about your interview, or offer any truth about you interviewed well, but the interviewer acted like he wanted to skip your interview, possibly hoping you were male and not female. as fare as giving up, that is not even an option, until you have gotten a job, so push those words aside and forget out them until you are hired some place. and, Good Luck!!!
I have an interview next week. Here's the possible issue that may stop me from getting the job. I have an open WC case for harassment with my current employer, and I have been told it is the norm for the employer to settle and have me resign and leave the company. With knowing this I have been proactive in looking for employement. My question is how do I explain why they cannot Contact my present employer. My fear is they will give me a bad reference which I am pretty sure they will because the suit names the bosses boyfriend as the harasser as well as 2 others.

Never say anything negative about your old boss. If he is called for a referral, then let him say something bad about you, this way you can sew him for that harassment against you. Just say it was time for you to look for a change in jobs.
I'm wondering I have a 1 page resume because the professional that I had make it said so the one she made up doesn't have room for the references. Got caught on it today the HR from the city ask me where my address is and references so I emailed an page for that. So anyway I think I'm going back to the 2 page the 2nd page can have address and references. What do you all think. Thanks God bless
How many years back can a company allow to check Your criminal background? Also I gave my last job a two week notice ,but I wasn't able to complete my to week notice because personal issues I was told I will be put on the no hire list if I don't complete the two weeks. I told them I wasn't able too,so now I'm concerned about using them as a reference. I was considered a great employee before I left.
This is disappointing..
I found out my previous employer has been giving me a negative reference check and saying that I was fired from that job when I was actually laid off with a group of other workers when our department closed down. I thought about taking that company off my resume but I worked there for over a year. I don’t know what else I can fill in to make up for that time on my resume. Besides, I think employers will eventually see that I worked there on the background check and think I’m trying to hide something. I need to find a job soon but I’m not sure what I can do about this. Any ideas?
Asking for a reference?
So here's the deal - references can make or break your application. It's no secret. You need to know what people are saying about you when potential employers call. That means you need to let them know that they're a reference! I recommend sending an email or giving your reference a quick call to let them know what you were thinking. If they agree, awesome. If not, you just avoided having a bad reference on your resume!
