Anybody at Accenture successfully submitted a referral through the system? Other firms? Seems like a black hole and wondering if it's worth the effort.

Works fine here

One...the rest never get call backs

And the only reason why it worked is bc I knew the recruiter

I got black holed.

I am one for seven

I submit through the system and then forward their resume to the recruiter who interviewed me. Everyone knows at least one recruiter! Send them the CV with why they're a great fit and then follow up. Even if that recruiter isn't managing that specific job/req, they will know the recruiter who is

Don't know what the "system" is that you're referring to... I am two for two so far. I always mention that I want to refer an experienced hire to my partner mentor first (he is head of experienced hires), discuss what practice area I think they would fit into, then email their resume to the head recruiter of experienced hiring and CC my partner mentor as well as the head partners of the practice groups I am suggesting them for.

Appreciate the responses y'all.
