employers might understand. I just told them that i would be happy to tell my supervisor and provide the reference if/when it should become necessary. Most places don’t want refs until they are ready to make you an offer.

Oh, yeah. It’s mainly actually asking one of my managers, ‘May I put you as a referee on my resume?’ and inevitably having to have yet another discussion about my incredibly hazy career goals. I’ve gone from ‘psychology graduate’ to ‘search for graduate jobs, what do you want to do, Sam?’ to ‘retail, maybe?’ to ‘maybe I want to do admin,’ to ‘maybe manager->state manager->what comes after?’ to ‘oh, maybe HR and Recruitment??’

All I know is that I want a career that pays enough for me to live. And live is right now synonymous with ‘buy a house/apartment’ in my mind.

I want to start looking for a new job, only I don’t want my managers at work to know I’m looking for a new job as they’re training/preparing me to eventually assume the role of Assistant Store Manager. Only, they’re my references/referees on my CV so dilemma right there.

" You’re alive. That means you have infinite potential. You can do anything, make anything, dream anything. If you change the world, the world will change. "

I need a salary so I can take out a loan to buy an apartment/house.

My intense desire to fulfill this wish makes me feel trés old.
