I got a two week contract for a reputable company. Unfortunately they didn't need us for as long as the thought so the reduced all the contractors to one week. One week is so short I probably wouldn't even include it on most resumes. Is there a point asking for a reference? Since I never even had the opportunity to work closely with full time staff, I don't know what they could say about me.
If I don't get a reference should I ask for at least a contact number or email address? Is there a difference between the two?
Technically speaking the recruiting agency who found me the position decided it would simplify the paper work if they hired me (i.e. paid me) as opposed to the actual company am working for.
