No ..they can refer can't take directly


I think yes!

Senior people would be able to help in a strong referral, but getting hired or influencing that is a difficult task.

Yes, that's usually how executive level professional get their jobs. Networks and golf clubs.

Who you know is almost as important as what you know,

They have some influence in the process but do not control it
