I understand what the purpose of references is, but the problem I'm having is that I just don't have any reference. I don't really interact with people outside of a work context. I've only ever had one real job, and a lot of people there never really get to know each other because of the constant flow of people joining and people leaving. I just started a second job, but it's only on-call and when I do work, I'm not there with anyone else (I work evenings/overnights alone).
I feel like I'm kind of stuck in a hard spot since most applications say you need to "list at least three references" and I can't even list one. Even worse, a lot of online applications won't even let me proceed and submit the application without filling in three references.
Even though I'm applying for entry-level positions, is having no references a bad thing? Would I be automatically disqualified from an application process for simply not listing any?
For an online application, would filling in all the fields with "NA" (as you would write on a paper application) just so you can submit the application be appropriate or looked down upon?
