Ugh! I remember the struggle of trying to find a job, hoping my resume reached a real human being and the feeling of hopelessness when it seemed like every big tech company already had their positions filled.
So you can imagine my surprise when my manager told me they were having a hard time finding people to fill positions! I asked him if I could refer some students for the roles available.
My department had 12 entry-level roles and 12 internship roles available, which were now going to be filled by the candidates I had recommended.
Are you thinking wow a big referral bonus for me? Well, we don’t get a referral bonus for entry-level jobs, but it truly doesn’t matter to me. It just feels lovely that I could help people get a job whose applications otherwise would never even have been read!
