Negative reference?

Post by cherrygirl » 19 Feb 2019, 11:52


I am writing again to ask how one of three references being negative could hurt the recruitment outcome?

I had to give reference of three most recent employers. Two of three have helped me before with another contract in the UN system. So I trust they would have provided glowing reference. I was in good terms with both of them as well. The last reference, I am not as confident as of other two....

Can anyone advise on this matter? I am just really scared as I have not heard back anything from potential employer after sending in reference contact details.
