I’d rather not say Manybrain since not a lot of folks go this route.

Nope, had referrals twice and both thought I had the perfect background. Never got an interview 🤷🏻‍♀️

Unpopular opinion but I have always thought the resume screening system in general is flawed and biased. And, ZS is no exception. Somehow we expect recruiters to have judgement of others' skill, acumen, expertise, and a lot more in a field they have 0 experience working in themselves.

Had 2 stark examples of referrals from non-target schools. One of them went thru LEK and the other at BCG. And, we didn't think they deserved a phone call during a time we were understaffed.
