NEED SOME HELP PLEASE
    #4427830 - 07/20/05 01:00 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hey guys, don't be alarmed, I'm not in danger.

I just landed a really great internship opportunity doing computer work for a company.  Being a college student, this will be my first real internship and I am excited as all hell about doing it.  The problem is, I don't have ANY letters of recommendation to hand over.
I have lots of credentials and achievements to list but no references which I'm afraid will hurt my chances of getting it.  Right now it's between me and 3 other people and I think I have the best shot at it if I can just get a couple short letters of recommendation.

If anyone has time, and would like to help me out tremendously, your favor will surely not be forgotten. 3 or 4 nice sentences would be enough to please me.  I just need something.  Please PM me if you can help me out, and I will give you more info about it.  I'll be checking my PMs religiously today. 

I can even send a simple template if need be to save you time. This was given to me on short notice, and I am meeting with the career services people tomorrow morning, so the timeline is very short and I have few other resources to look to right now except my friends at Shroomery.  Thanks so much to anyone who has a few minutes to give.

:heart: :heart: :heart:

I'd help you out, but I feel weird about giving out my name and address and phone number to a stranger on a drug site.

:lol: goobler, i'd say that you are probably the only boss who actually would take the time to do that.

but, more seriously, don't you know some people in your (real life) community who could do this for you? i'd gladly write a reference for you, but have no clue who you are, so... :wink:

I do have some real resources, but I have to have it by tomorrow morning at 9am, and haven't been able to get in touch with anybody.

Anyways, I wouldn't ask you to give your real name/addy/phone#, a real e-mail address would be the most I'd ask. The internship is only a few hours a month doing HTML stuff and is unpaid (and for me it's just going to be used as a resume builder) so I highly doubt they're going to waste any time checking references. I just want something to hand over. I have done plenty of similar work in the past, but unfortunately don't have access to the people I did the work for anymore, so I can't use them for references I really don't like being dishonest, but this is something I really really really want to do and a perfect opportunity as I start to contemplate future goals, and in my opinion, a little white lie done as a favor that can only be benefitial is as good as no harm done in my book.

But if you don't know me at all, I don't blame ya for not being interested, no real reason to discuss that either, just PM me if you can, and if you can't, its cool too, thanks a bunch.
