I'm also worried bc I don't have many "business references"? It was specified that I bring contact info for at least 3 to to the interview.

I mean, they aren't all casual either.....but many are the people from former temp agencies who were in charge of my assignments.

Almost all of the supervisors/managers from my previous assignments are gone from their positions. Except one.

Someone please advise

Do you have a way to contact your previous managers? Have you tried looking for them on LinkedIn? I bet you will find them there and usually you can find an email/contact there.

This is good news; fret not!
This is good advice.

Also, I'd think that anyone you've worked with would constitute a "business reference". I take it to mean that the don't want school references (professors, etc.) or personal references (friends, mentors, etc).

And of course make sure your references are aware someone will be calling, and even prep them on the strengths you're trying to play up.
