Will Your Previous Employer Give You a Good Reference?

Are you applying for positions but feel you’re hitting your head against a brick wall? Maybe you are if your past employer has blacklisted you. Too often, our office sees job seekers who are reluctant to request letters of recommendation from their former employer, supervisor, foreman or manager. If you request of letter of recommendation before you leave employment, it will be much more difficult for a boss to decide to use you as scapegoat for all the company’s shortfalls after you are gone. Once you have left, you are certainly entitled to know what your employer is saying to other businesses in which you have interviewed. Let’s say you’ve called, you were told all was good but you still have a nagging suspicion the reference given to others is not good. The linked article will inform you of what questions to ask your employer when you call and what you can do to find out exactly what the former employer is saying to others.
