I had an interview for a legal secretary job today that went well IMO. The attorney told me I was the leading candidate because of my experience.
I'm praying that my former boss gives me the good reference that he told me he would when my position was eliminated last year. He has no reason to screw me over, but I really want this job and I'm paranoid.
I'm pretty sure it's illegal if you ask if them if they will give you a positive reference and they say that they will, then don't.
