Applying for a part time job but got no references?

    The reason I am asking this is because it will not allow me to continue with my application form unless I put in 2 references which I don't have. What do I do?

    Find two referees, if you haven't had kind of work experience before then ask teachers/lecturers or family friends.*

    If you're fresh out of school, then you should use two references from there. If not, then try to use at least one reference from your most recent educational institution: another can be a professional person who knows you enough to act as a referee. Family/friends are obviously not appropriate and you will be found it if you try it.

    One more thing - it's good practice to ask people if you can use their name before you write it on the form.
