Was bullied into resigning recently. Supervisor was a complete control freak who would rewrite my emails to stakeholders, demand to know where I am at every minute of every day, would reverse my decisions without communicating, and bully me when she didn’t get her way. Likely a blessing in disguise as I was miserable and hated the toxic workplace but how does one move forward as I no longer have a reference?

Oh man, that's absolutely rough. Was this your first job? Do you have other colleagues, non managers in cross functional teams who can vouch for you?

Yes, that was my thinking in securing references from other colleagues. No, not my first job so I have references from other roles. Just so frustrating that my supervisor was just so casually cruel.

Who were you bullied into resigning? Anyway to file a law suit?
