Job I Applied To Asked For My References? ?

I had a job interview Monday for about 20 minutes. I was nervous at first but I feel that it went ok. They messaged me the next day saying they would like to continue the selection process and asked me to send my  references. Is this a good sign that I could get the job? They told me I would hear from them by the end of the week but I didn’t.

    Most probably your referees were not available when they phoned them.

    It's a sign they want your references, nothing more.

    If they had already decided that they were not going to hire you, they wouldn’t waste their time asking you for references.  So, nothing is guaranteed, but as of the moment you are still under consideration.

    Anytime they call back for more information is good.  It means you are still in the process.   If they said they'd make a decision by the end of the week, that's not an absolute deadline.  I would not worry for another three or four days.
