? about personal references on job application. sm - Hermit.

Posted: Jan 9th, 2018 - 12:14 pm

Could use some ideas for a job application I am filling out that requires 3 non-relative personal references. I listed one close friend out of state, but (here's the embarrassing part) there is no one else who knows me well enough to list. I moved 3000 miles away from friends and family 25 years ago and almost immediately started working from home and then provided in-home care for a terminally ill parent for a few years and simply did not have or take time to forge many friendships. The few I did manage to make have moved or passed away over the years. No spouse or kids, so no connections there. There are a couple neighbors I could ask to be references, though we only have an over-the-fence-chat relationship. It's just that it is so embarrassing to admit to them I have only 1 friend to list after living here for so long. I do plan on being more social this year, but that does not help now with this job application. TIA.
