Asked in Citation and References
What references will your current employer give you?
My current employer will give me a good reference because I have taken the time to explain to him/her that while I ejoyed working with them there seems to be nothing more I can give them, and that I want to better myself, that's why I am leaving to join another company.
Most employers at this stage will either offer you something better position wise, or money wise, and if they don't have anything to offer you, they will probably assure you that they will definitely give you a good reference because you took the time, to not only tell them about your decision to leave, but at the same time you are giving them a notice that you are leaving and giving them the chance to find someone to replace you.
Employers never or very rarely will forget that you made this jesture in parting and if you ever need another reference from them you would surely get one.
