The Perfect Job Reference by Jeffrey G. Allen

How to get a perfect job reference is the subject of this uniquely helpful guide. While the ''reference check'' is potentially the most damaging phase of job-seeking, it is also a powerful tool that the candidate can learn to control to his best advantage. The Perfect Job Reference details all aspects of the subject, providing answers to such questions as when the employer is most likely to check references, how to find the best reference possibile and blunt the threat of a bad reference, and even how to write your own references. In addition to covering legal aspects of the subject, the author shows how to obtain government information about yourself and how, with a little help, you may be able to seal a criminal record forever. It gives the reader all the tools necessary for using the job reference to maximum career advantage.
