This has been always the case, good jobs are not posted anywhere, they fly at the speed of a beer... ... in any case, you can turn to former work colleagues, class mates and friends, the friend of a friend may be good, but it's better if they know you personally; however, if you have to ask, then i'm afraid there is something else wrong.
Soundwave is supposed to announce sidewaves today. I have a week on the mainland between shows ( going to two ) and I hope to do a show every night, there's more good bands than could fit in a week, so hopefully it works out. Hoping to get my daughter to BVB, 5FDP or Rob Zombie. Hoping to see Asking Alexandria, Trivium, Alter Bridge and A7X for myself.
The new AB is SO good. The new A7X is the best metal album of the past 15 years for sure. Yeah, some of those bands are reasonably recent, although not much more so than AB ( but all are definitely heavier than AB ). Except Volbeat, did I mention them ? You MUST hear Volbeat.
thanks for the suggestion; been looking for new bands recently...
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason? Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful? --Zachris Topelius

Seems a bit odd - surely your current boss is your best referee. I DID have to recently sit an interview with a client, to make sure they approved of me being tasked with working on their project this year. That was a first, for me.
Yep - they've asked for two - one is my current boss. The other they want external. This is for each individual of a team of about 10 being put forward - not contracted to the client directly, but to develop some SW for them. I think it might be a safeguard to ensure we don't just outsource to the sub continent or something!
I pointed out I"d be happy for them to call me directly, they already have a copy of my resume.
Being rather old school I find this quite outrageous. However I am amazed at the new norms in our society (Australia) and others. Employees nowadays are willing to subject themselves to indignities which I would see as evidence of lack of self respect. Would anyone ask a doctor or lawyer to do this? Employers are exercising a power creep which is amazing. I guess in the Facebook world people voluntarily give up their privacy and rights every day.

It is clear that you typed what you meant and you and other posters understand what you meant, but could you please explain what in the world a referee is used for in the business world? To me, a referee is a guy in a uniform running around with a whistle on some kind of grassy field.
I'm working with police and army and they are demanding various info on every worker we have. But there you now your info is safe... I would not pass info on without ensure that it will be removed after confirmation...
