Re: Chances of getting hired thru job referral

Depends how well respected your friend is, how well placed he is in the company.

I have referred a friend to a job before, and he got the job because I have a good reputation with my colleagues and bosses.

Edit: I also forgot to mention.... this assumes you are qualified for the job.

see his rank in the company bah ...if his a clerk ,then changes are low ..if his a manager or a CEO then u will have high chance ...and maby qualification plays a part too.

Re: Chances of getting hired thru job referral

Chances are quite high if your friend is holding a middle to top position in the company and of cos have to look at your requirements too.

Re: Chances of getting hired thru job referral

Hi People

Anyone of you is working as a HR? Coz i got something to ask..perhaps non-HR personnel also can clear my doubts - I've got an interview last Tuesday and there were 2 interviewers, one is the HOD and the other is section head. We had a very pleasant conversation and i can see that they have a gd impression of me. My confidence went up further after they asked me when can i start work.At that point of time, i really felt that i will be selected.Before the interview ended, they say they will get the HR to call me and it may tk about 1 to 2 weeks.After waiting for abt 1.5 weeks, i decided to call to the section head today and she say she needs to check with her HR and will call me back next wk.

Can anybody tell me why she needs to check with her HR?Is HR the one who makes the final hiring decision?From your point of view, do you think i stand a high chance of getting this job?

Re: Chances of getting hired thru job referral

most big companies.... when they have a job opening... 1st part is definally the dept tat is hiring u doing the interview..... once they like u and found tat u r suitable will come part 2.... which is HR... where they will review ur salary and wat u asking for to see if it fits their bill.... usually HR part is harder to pass if u asking for high salary.... bt if the deptment desprately need u they will overide HR....

Re: Chances of getting hired thru job referral

Chances are definitely better! But you must also prepare a good resume and give a good impression at your interview! I know because I owned a company for 12 years.

Re: Chances of getting hired thru job referral

Chances is high, but if the referral has a bad reputation in the company, please re-consider.

Re: Chances of getting hired thru job referral

Hmm.. depend on your friend/relatives positions or 'power'... But again, depend on ownself too... I believe that if one has the true capability in which a company need, even he/she has friends/relatives in that company, and without their help. You will be able to get the job. Of course, with referral will be stronger in getting a job.
But one without the 'usage' in that company, even with referral, also no use ba

Re: Chances of getting hired thru job referral

The important thing to do here is to show your interest in getting the job by calling them after few days intervals, quite regularly. When you want something ------ go for it!!! Yeah, qualification is important too.

Cheers,

Re: Chances of getting hired thru job referral

referral method works for two extremes of occupations;
a. low paying jobs like waiters/waitresses
b. high profile jobs like GM's etc
other jobs in between (like engineers/technicians) i'd believe it's rather unlikely...
