    I was signing up for Advaliant and 1 of the questions they asked me has me stumped.
    "6. Please provide 1-2 industry references and their contact information. Please include referral/company name, phone number, email. (Required)"
    What would be the best thing to put here? I really have no idea.

    Thanks in advance.

    tell them in a polite and professional way to fuck off because its none of their business what networks you are with - not too harsh so you still get accepted.

    They do ask for the references now and after giving them references, they want you to force the reference to call them.
    Very tough.

    Mind PMing me the name of this network?

    I've never heard of this before and it find it quite interesting but yes s0phia has the right idea. Tell them that you can show them screenshots of other accounts but not direct references. Its just a privacy issue.

    Edit: Just saw Advaliant sry lol

    This damn requirement stopped me to be accepted a few weeks ago with them. I'm with some networks but not using them so much. Anyway i sent only one reference and after that, they never replied to me again. But that's okay, there's hundreds of other networks out there and today i just got accepted by C P A Lead. :D
