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?

Hi Lifehacker, I'm currently completing my university studies and I'll want to apply for some graduate opportunities, either mid-year or next year. The thing is, I don't actually have any work experience relevant to the roles I'm looking at -- all of my prior jobs were just to "pay the bills", so to speak. While I have plenty of extra-curricular activities to note on my resume, the main issue is with referees.
