Anyone ever successfully referred an SO? I am obviously biased, but I am also not going to refer someone that is not qualified. Any suggestions as to how to ensure the referral is taken seriously?

Take a video of your SO demonstrating their skills. Preferably with a black leather couch in the background, that will ensure that your referral is taken seriously.

sounds like an awful idea

You can only submit the referral through the portal and add your recommendation. The talent team will take it from there and make a determination as to whether or not your SO is qualified for the next step.

Refer the SO. Disclose the relationship. No problem.

PWC 1... hmmm, I think I’ve seen that one before...

Sounds good - considering I am commercial advisory and my SO would hypothetically be highly specialized federal advisory, we would never work on the same projects.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
