If your only issue is that some references and employers are not responding...then noob has the right answer. Go and bug the heck out of the references until they get it done. Help them understand how important this is to you. If you have other issues you think might be the real reason it is going slow, you can PM me....I was previously assigned as a BI and can provide you some advice and/or realism if you like.
