    I need a job. I'm a student again and money is tight. my first job, i was there ages and it went a bit tits up at the end. i was illegally dismissed and all that and said i can't use them a reference. since it was my first job i'm a bit stressed about it. how can i apply to employers with only one job and no references?

    any help or advice would be appreciated.

    If you were illegally dismissed, can't you challenge it? As for references, most employers will require them but you should be able to find a couple of education referees or something from where you're studying

    It was my first job. Don't wanna be seen as like a trouble maker(?) maybe a bad analogy. i'll give that a go 👍
