Just got a call from Honda Engineering, they have several contract position opening, Is it weird that they ask for references even before phone interview?


They're just pre-screening you. There's no sense interviewing you if your references aren't good.

Thanks, I just feel it is a bit strange that they are pre-screening by checking references first then phone interview.

... krisliang, with all due respect, the grammar in your communications might be holding you back with prospective employers. perhaps you might considering retaining someone to prepare your resumes and thank you letters for you instead of doing them yourself ...


No kidding? I thought the English is good when I was reading it, which means my grammar sucks either...
