References – Who What Why When How | #JobAdviceSA 30 July 2018

Join The #JobAdviceSA team at 16:00 – 17:00 Monday 30 July 2018 on Twitter and Facebook as they share tips and advice on your most burning questions as a Job Seeker. Today’s topic is on “References” and the questions are brought to you by our guest @MsPhiona. She unfortunately won’t be live during the chat but will catch up as the day goes. The #JobAdviceSA Team will be answering the following questions…

The Questions Are:
1. Who should you put as a reference, Can you put a relative, what if you have never worked?
2. What if I did not get along with previous boss, should I omit him/her from reference list, is this dishonest?
3. How do I ensure my previous employers/contacts give me good references?
4. Can I sue a previous employer for giving me a bad reference or saying bad things about me?
Bonus 5. Do employers accept written references?




Our Hosts Tim Barry (@TimJBarry), Vanessa Raath (@Van_Raath), Elzette Fourie (@ElzetteFourie) and Wesley Madziva (@WeszMadz) will be on hand to give their advice and answer your other questions from 16h00 to 17h00, but you are welcome to tweet your questions to @JobAdviceSA at any time or day, or if you are not on Twitter you can like our Facebook page and post your questions there.
