You don't need to use every job you have had as a reference. You can also explain to a future employer why you won't use them as a reference. If you have a legit excuse, most employers are reasonable.

When it comes to a resume for a job you consider a career I only put applicable work history. If it makes you feel better HR usually only calls for confirmation that you worked there on certain dates. Long story short; just don't come back to that job. No one has ever asked me why I quit showing up at a job when I was 18.

so many stupid people on here thinking employers won't look at references or will understand if you dont use them. My employer contacted all my references even ones I couldn't get the contact details for and lucky for me I take every job I have seriously so all had good things to say.

Every situation is different. If there is a legit reason to quit without notice, a new employer will understand. I have been there, done that. So down vote all you like, but every circumstance is different. I have written on applications that the may not contact a previous employer and have still gotten the job. Yes, it can affect future jobs, but not always.

The last job I worked at did NOT check. The manager hired me before I even completely filled out my application. But I've walked out of quite a few jobs without notice due to being treated poorly. If you don't respect me, I'm not going to respect you. I don't recommend it, surely, but it won't ruin your whole life, either.

#33 everyone checks. I don't hire anyone without checking every professional and personal reference in their application. You have zero idea what you're talking about and should never give advice again.

This is such a great idea. I know I stress under situations like these, not just at work but even with family or when I was in school. Writing it out and going over what you want to say, even if it takes a dozen times before you start to feel comfortable, is the best way to approach the situation. And if you can't reach that point, like 6 said, you can walk in and just hand your boss the notice.

The best way to resign from a job is with is written notice, given to your manager, and HR, and an email sent as well. This way no one can dispute it.
