I don't think I've ever listed references. I don't want you talking to my current coworkers or boss nor my prior. At that point its just personal references and that's just me with a burner phone saying I'm a boss ass bitch.

I used managers that I worked with and other internship directors!

I always just put "available upon request" for job applications. It's kinda dumb to ask for references before they've even met you. I have still gotten interviews when doing this.

So this is my first job! And not many people I know that were above me have left so far

Professor maybe? Worst case maybe team mates from college projects if you really don't have anyone.

Is there someone you trust who knows you at your current job who can be reference?

It sounded like the role will be focused on the discovery and RFP side of the project life cycle. I think the term is pre-sales?
