Contact two referees and record their references.

Posted by Stacey-lee P.



Due date
Sunday, 9th Jun 2013
I wish for someone to contact two of the people who have been listed as references on my resume to get a true perspective of feelings towards me in relation to my employment. I have applied for a couple of jobs recently which after (in my opinion) acing the interview, I've not gotten a callback from so I'm beginning to suspect that despite they are giving me a bad reference for whatever reason.

I have a list of ten simple questions I would like them asked. All you would need to do is give them a call (I wouldn't expect each to take longer than 5 minutes apiece) and record the conversation. I would expect you to pretend that you were calling on behalf of a company who intended to employ me. Spectrum Marketing for example, seeing as I've been employed mostly in marketing jobs thus far.

I can provide you with a copy of my resume if you'd like to glance over it quickly.

This would suite someone with an older/professional sounding voice.

Once the task is complete, I would like you to email the recordings of the calls to me.

I think the price is reasonable for 15 minutes worth of work all up, but I am willing to negotiate if you think it's worth more.

its also illegal to record phone conversation without the other parties consent, so any phone query would have to have to disclose the recording. not to mention any misrepresentation the caller would be making
Hi Stacey, recently I became aware that it is fast becoming "illegal" to give anyone bad reference as you can sue them. I did some research on this a few months back and companies who didn't have anything positive to say, can just say you worked at such a place from the dates and position held. A lawyer will confirm what I am saying. Recruiters don't have law degree they just get are hired and trained. Trust me on this. So if you suspect bad reference, see a lawyer.
the person I write for being rather well known and a little secretive of the fact that they use a ghost writer. Other than that, I don't think I'd really be opposed to much, except manual labour.
which is why I'm starting to become a little concerned that I haven't secured a position in any of the few jobs that would actually accommodate my schedule. If I were to go out on a limb and proclaim my ideal position at the moment, it would probably be a personal assistant role, nannying or something were I can indulging my love of writing. I have experience in constructing articles for a blog, although due to a strict disclosure statement I can't actually announce that on my resume due to
Hey Stephen. Thank you for the kind words. I'm not too fussed about what the position entails really, but I've been involved in outbound sales for the past four years and it's becoming a little draining. I'm sure anyone else who has been in the industry would agree that after time, the rejection sort of grates on your nerves. Unfortunately being that I'm studying at the moment it would have to be either part-time or entail odd hours;
