Hi, I work for my family's business and while my father is not my direct boss, I do work very closely with him on a day-to-day basis.

I think he would write the best reference for me but will it be seen as a negative to have him write it? Should I ask a colleague instead?

(Note: I plan to ask my direct boss to be one of two referees)

vedikajj unfortunately its a no on this. Most schools expressly forbid recs from family members.

Think about your direct boss, vendors, peers and even better board members, places of community involvement.

Where have you demonstrated leadership, teamwork and problem solving? That would be the question to ponder.

Hi,

Completely agree with Farrell. Recommendations from Father, Uncles, Brothers will not carry any weight at all. Don't do it.

Thank you
