So today I had my interview for a position I really want at the college I went to. Apparently I did ok, because I just got an email from my interviewer saying that I am definitely one of the finalists, and they want to see a list of professional references.
Only thing is... I'm not really sure who my references should be! I've been debating over this for a while. I work for a very small company and have basically been the only employee of my boss for the past 4.5 years. A few other employees have come and gone, but no one has stayed for more than 6 months. We have new 2 employees now, but have only been here since the spring.
So do I tell my boss that I applied for this job and ask him to be my reference? (my sister is convinced that I should), or do I scrounge around and use some slightly less relevant references (like my 5 year part time job boss, and the more current co-worker that was only here for 6 months) so as not to tip off the boss that I am looking around for a new job just yet...
Thoughts?? I'm thinking that I need to figure this out over the weekend so that I can get him the references on Monday.
