How/ Who should I ask for references
I've been working at a retail store for 8 months, and I have several different store managers already.
Which store managers should I ask for references? (store managers are constantly reassigned to different branches so I only work with each for roughly 2 months)
References are important to have, but not all companies ask for them. It is also very important that you leave this company on good terms so that if they are call about you the report will be good and they will say all the nice things about you.
I wish you the best!! and if you have any other questions on this or other items please let me know!!
It is best to request a reference from managers whom you have built a great rapport with and have shown excellence work ethic to, even to the point of receiving praise. It is also best to select managers who support your personal growth and advancement careerwise and do not only consider how you will benefit your current employer. Best of luck!
Choose the manager you would most like to clone and then in addition ask others in various professions if they would be willing to be a reference for you. Initially you just need to be prepared with names and contact info. Consider sport team managers or band leaders, school teachers, etc. wherever you have performed well. Good to have a mix of references.
