Had a little (and possibly very
lucrative) opportunity arise... now what do I do, I need two references, and have one already arranged, however I have been self-employed for the past 6 years, and have no work references from the past 4 years...
What can I do in this case? Should I get a reference off a partner company instead, or should I look for a character reference instead, and if so, what type of person would be a goodun? What weight does a character reference have in relation to a work reference?
Am not 100% sure as to how important the reference is tbh, as its via a good contact I have in a very high place, but I would like to get the best possible line of attack sorted incase I decide to pursue the opportunity.
I want to give myself a reference since I am the current employer of myself, but obviously I cant haha!
