    How would you do that? Do you not have to provide contact details and then they contact them?
    Just be honest! I can't imagine you needing references from the Archbishop of Canterbury for a cleaning job, to be honest. Just use a tutor or something, who'll say you're committed and trustworthy.

    It is when it comes from somebody with zero rep power like yourself.

    Faking references is pointless, especially for something like a bar cleaning job - if I was employing somebody to clean a bar, I don't think I'd be too bothered about a reference, as all I'd want is for them to turn up on time.

    If you did it, you'd need to put down a professional address, not somebody's home address; likewise with the email and phone number, otherwise it'll look dodgy. It's more hassle than it's worth, and tbh, if you have referees who are willing to give you a reference, it's socially-unacceptable to make it bad, so providing it says you're punctual, it'll be fine.

    Surely you know someone who can give you a genuine reference and vouch for your suitability to work as a cleaner. Surely.:rolleyes:

    Wow references for a cleaning job!?
    I still say no, just get someone to do it legitimately, can't be that hard!

    If I were the OP, I would want a nice girl like you to be my reference.
