  • The Reference Desk

    Recently, my position as a firm librarian was eliminated and I was let go. At my exit interview, my supervisor explained that if she were to be contacted as a reference, she would only be able to verify my dates of employment. I asked a co-worker if she would serve as a reference and she agreed to do so. A few days later, she contacted me and related that our mutual supervisor informed her that she couldn't serve as my reference. I'm concerned that without some reference from my former employer, it will be difficult for me to explain to potential employers why I left the position. Whose name should I provide as a reference when I apply for other positions?
