Re: Potential employer demanding a reference from current employer

I was asked for 2 references from my current employer. They even asked for one from my current direct boss, which was a little risky. I did ask for confirmation of where I was int he selection process and was told I was the last man standing. hence I took the risk and agreed (as did my somewhat unhappy boss). Fortunately I got a job offer so this is not a problem now. Would have been different if there was no offer as this has undoubtedly changed the relationship with my old boss.
Congratulations on the job offer!
