It generally depends on the nature and level of the job. References can be very important to your success in gaining a particular job. As references provide a first-hand recount of your skills and reliablity, the quality of your references can weigh heavily if you're going in for something high-paying. For an entry-level job, references aren't as important. Regardless of what job you're applying for, it is always essential to try to rally the best references you can get.
References are important- choose wisely. Coworkers, supervisors...anyone who can speak to your work performance are the best references. For students, that may be a professor or instructor of some sort.

It can save a lot of headache... you can lose out on a job because your contact provides a lukewarm reference.
