Recently I gave a friend of mine a reference for a job as I used to supervise her. Over the last year or so I have given her a few references as she has changed jobs a few times and always has two part time jobs going at once.
When I gave the reference for her recently the employer mentioned that her other reference said that she "lacks initiative and often stand there staring into space". I never had these issues with her and told the employer that.
I'm a bit stuck now if I should tell my friend about the negative reference? I'm pretty sure she got the job anyway and one one hand I don't want to hurt her feelings but on the other hand I think she should know so that she doesn't use that reference again. She is a friend I see a few times a year not really close but have know her a long time.
Any advice would be appreciated
