    Default References

    I am returning to work after a 4 year break and am not sure who I can use to provide work references. I think my old boss is still with my old company but in a different area now plus I'm worried it's too long ago? I did do a temp role last year through an agency for a few months, but I don't want to ask my supervisor there as I'm not sure she would give me a great reference and I got the feeling she didn't like me much? Can the agency provide a reference or provide my references as they have placed me in a few roles over the years?

    Anyway, what should I do about current references? They usually want 2 or 3 work references?

    You need to speak to your referees. Your temp angency should be able to provide feedback from your temp employers. I would ring the other old boss and just confirm that he is still willing to be an referee.
