Hi Khyati

There are some circumstances when you can demur from giving referees names out - where you're applying for a job without your current employer knowing about it, and you don't want a referee to know to whom you're applying unless it's extremely likely that you'll join them.

In this case you can use the request: 'Yes, of course I am happy for you to take up references, but can we do this when we've made good progress and there's a good chance that we might be going ahead together.

Another possible reply could be 'I would prefer to give my current employer as a referee only when you have made me an offer that I have accepted. We should also have agreed a start date so that I can resign in a professional way and leave a good taste behind me when I leave'.

In order to post replies to the question: " What should be my answer when interviewer asks me “Can we check your references (For Job Changers)?”"
