How do I get references if I have no job experience?

Look for Work
Answer

Even if you don’t have work experience, there are still people who can put in a good word for you. They don’t need to be former employers.

Consider requesting a reference from:

  • volunteer group organizers
  • community group organizers
  • religious leaders
  • elders
  • teachers or instructors
  • landlords
