If you are thinking about your prospects for landing that new job, you should think first about what your former supervisor and other references will say about you. Your past may have a direct impact on future success. No matter what the nature of your job or pay scale, you should take your references very seriously. They can make or break a hiring decision. Here are some common job-search myths that should be dispelled: 1. Companies are not allowed to say anything negative about a former employee. 2. Most organizations direct reference checks to their human resources departments, and they won't say anything negative about you. 3. You should include references on your resume.
