So, I finally got a couple call backs from decent looking prospective employers!!! Alot of you know this already, but I am looking for a new job after being at my current position for only 4 months now. It's just not for me, I'm unchallenged and bored all of the time.

Do I list this current position as a reference? There's been no bad blood, but I personally don't feel that they can accurately reflect the way I work because this position is just so wrong for me....

ETA: and who do I put down then? I kind of report to multiple people, so do I put down the one who I report to most? I don't want to list all 3 because that will distract from other references that I have that are much stronger.

If you have other, better references and you don''t need any filling out, then I''d just put down (the best) one.

I would opt not to use any of your current supervisors as a reference. Especially considering you have other, stronger references. Just list it as a position held so they can call and verify your dates of employment and rate of pay.

I agree with Julie. I would put one because otherwise it looks like something went wrong at your last place of employment especially since your time there was short. Good luck to you!

Many companies are opting to NOT give recomendations - some even refusing to verify information unless you sign a waiver of release. Don''t know how widespread this is - just been in the news lately. Some people are starting to list personal recomendations - be it friend, client or co-worker.

fire & ice brings up a good point. it has been the policy of my husband''s company to only verify employment for several years now.
