I left my previous company. On the last day, the CTO told me that she can give me a recommendation, and help me to find a new employer.
But, later I figured out that when I give a her as a reference in my CV, she says negative things about me.
So, I cannot consider her as a reference, but I know the other teammates will highlight my positive points for employers.
But, the question is:
- Is the recommendation of another team member as valuable as CTOs?
- How would the HRs react if the recommendation does not come from a manager?
