> Need urgent advice about reference request Last week I made the first phone interview with this company, and they already scheduled the video call with the hiring manager for tomorrow, they seem impressed by my experience in the field.
But in the meantime they sent me an email requesting at least 5 references, of which 2 must be current or past supervisors. This seem odd to me, sending my reference before even doing my second interview and without having an offer in my hands. My impression is that this step should be the last one BEFORE having the offer, not now in these previous steps. So I would like to have your opinion about this situation. It seems they expect me to send those names before tomorrow's video interview. I'm not sure what to do, I have good references but I would like to use them when I will be sure about finding a job position and a company I really like. Now it seems a bit premature to me. But again, I may be wrong.
