Do you ever hire people who apply to your job posting(s) or only by referral?

I’ve hired both. referral will usually get a closer look, especially if it’s someone on my team. but I’ve made hires from postings.

I've gotten 3 jobs from applying to postings and many responses/interviews too. If you're the right fit or potential match, they'll get back to you. But not if you're like the 37th submission. Usually works more upfront when the posting is new

I work from oldest to newest when reviewing them so it doesn't matter if you're 1 or 71.
But yeah, I've found some great people who've applied via a posting. Upper management referrals are a drag. "Hire my cousin's kid" isn't exactly a professional win for a recruiter. They're really boring. Necessary, but boring. Regular employee referrals can be great, but only if employees are referring people who are great for the open role and not just for the referral bonus.

Hello!
Trying to figure out the right way to go about initiating a raise. I started in January of ‘22 and believe I took a lower salary because I was desperate to get into the apparel industry. I wfh (in CO) for a NYC company and know everyone working in office HAS to be getting paid more because it’s a low living wage for NYC. However, Colorado is very expensive too. I love the position and the company. How does one initiate asking for a raise without regular performance reviews?
