Today I had someone call me to ask me questions about a person I know who is trying to get a job. I’ve been put down as a reference on people’s applications and resumes before but this was the first time that someone contacted me and asked me about the person who is applying. It was a weird feeling, it made me nervous because I didn’t want to say something that would make the person they are asking about be less desirable. Luckily in this case it was easy to just be honest because the person in question is a pretty upstanding guy and a hell of a hard worker. Hopefully it was helpful and he gets the job.
