Q: How do I make sure my references will actually give me a good reference?

James says....
Manage expectations. When you ask your former boss/colleague to provide a reference, step out of your comfort zone and ask this question: Where do you feel I need development? Talk about your past weakness(es), and discuss how you have improved since or plan to. That way, when your reference gets the call, they will be able to provide honest and up-to-date insights on you and your abilities.
