I've worked at the same company since I graduated college 5 years ago, I'm interviewing for new job now and they are asking for references what do I do?
Hi! Hoping someone could help share their thoughts on this. I have been working at the same company since I graduated college 5 years ago (interned there and everything). I've decided it's time for something new and have been discretely interviewing. I've made it through the final round of interviews , and now they are asking for professional references specifically who I directly reported to. For obvious reasons have none, as all of my direct managers are still with my current company. I sent references of former coworkers who left the company and a non corporate boss (retail).
Any suggestions? Do you think this would prevent me from getting hired?
