Dear Lifehacker, What can you do if you have no work referees for a potential employer? I lost my current position after four months, due to major differences with the manager, so I can’t use him as a referee. Prior to that I worked for a small team for seven years — but three of them, including the manager, were killed in a car accident. That means there is no one that can vouch for my work to any employer. Any ideas?
We know data centres are becoming more important, and we know that many of them are becoming bigger and more densely-populated as a result — but what do terms such as “large” and “high density” really mean? A new set of proposed standards might help answer the question. Are you large, massive or mega?
When you are meeting someone new, they will probably ask: “So what do you do?” If you want to make a good first impression, answer by discussing how you solve problems.
