I am looking for a job right now. After sending resumes in the last month or so, I got some answers, phone interviews, video interviews at different firms, amongst which 5 seem seriously interested in my profile.
We are at a point where those firms are asking for references, almost all at the same time.
I am quite young in my career, but I managed to collect about 4-5 good contacts which were superiors or project managers where I used to work (3 different places). I feel weird to put the same references over and over and I fear my contacts will be annoyed to be called multiple times for different jobs for me. I mean, they owe me nothing.
I know its a beautiful problem to have multiple job openings, but at the same time, I really don't want to bother my ex-coworkers or ex-bosses for something they are not a part of anymore, which is my career.
How do you manage this? How should I manage this?
