Hello all.
I'm applying for a job at the moment and in the end of the application it asks me for "Personal Reference" and honestly I don't really know what to put there since I'm still at school and I've never worked for someone before...
I was thinking to put in my pupil support teacher, since she is the main person who knows a lot of things about me(except parents) and knows my strengths and qualities.
What do you think?
Cheers

Asking your teacher would be your best bet if you have never worked before. You could also consider references from volunteering (if you have done any) or from extracurricular activities.

I haven't done any volunteering before. I guess I will put in my pupil support.
Thanks.

Also if you are a member of any clubs/societies, then you could also get a leader or someone from there to give you a reference as well.
