I want to start applying for jobs but the last time I worked was in 2003, and I haven't kept in touch with anyone from that job or any of my previous jobs--that's 3 jobs where I don't talk to anyone anymore. I know I could try calling the old companies to see if they are still there, but even if they are, I would feel so awkward after almost 6 years especially since I wasn't on great friendship terms with anyone...although I did pretty well at the jobs themselves...to start chit chatting with them only to try to get something from them. At this point though, I don't even have anyone I'd feel comfortable putting down as a personal reference either. I mean, I don't volunteer anywhere or attend a house of worship, and I'm looking for something that starts next summer so before then, I wouldn't even have a chance to join some organization to get a reference. WWYD?
