Manager refuses to give me a reference (and this is really awkward)
My manager and I don’t really hit it off (hence, why I’m looking for a new job). Recently, this manager declined to recommend me as being a good fit for another role. While this is the exact opposite of giving me confidence, should I consider this being a favor –– as I’m realizing he’d probably not be the best fit to talk about great things about me?
I’m not sure what to think of this, really. But I definitely need a new reference strategy. Any and all advice?? Thank you!
