Although my anxiety isn't so severe where I can't talk to people, I haven't had it in me to ask anyone male or female for there number and so I don't have any references to get a job. I'm only 20 and living at home so I'm in no hurry but it seems like a catch 22, a job will help you meet people to get a good reference from but in order to get a job you need to be social and have friends or people to reference your work ethic. I've had previous employement but I don't have any friends or anyone to get a reference from. But I guess I should just keep looking, I found 1 job that doesn't require any references. Oh and please I'm not trying to get any pity or any one to fake reference me I just want to see how others are dealing.
