I am in the field of Mechanical Engineering and I graduated a year and a half ago. While in college I interned at a company and when I graduated that company pulled me on full time. I am now looking to pursue other opportunities, but I am unsure of what to do about references.
Everyone I have worked with is still at this company and I don't want them to know I am looking for a new job. If I quit my job I am sure that anyone there will give me wonderful references, but everyone says not to quit your job before you have a new one.
