    An "important" job requires both an academic reference (which I have) and a professional reference (of which I do not have). I am essentially looking for my first job so cannot use a past employer.

    Who can be a professional reference?

    Someone from an organisation or charity can give you a professional reference, for example, have you done any volunteering in the past?
