Does it look badly on a referrer if the person who they referred either isn't a good candidate or chooses not to take the job if they are?

Not from HR so can’t say my answer is gold. But the way I see it, I wouldn’t refer someone who I don’t believe in, and I see a referral for a good candidate as taking some burden off of HR. So, I don’t believe it would negatively impact the referrer.

Interesting Point in regards to inferring their potential interview/job skills to how they go about requesting help in the way of referrals, thank you A1.

I would never refer someone who I didn’t know or couldn’t vouch for their work or ethics. I’ve seen a lot of people just blanket ask on this App for referrals and I always found it to be ballsy.

Thanks for your perspective, I was thinking on a similar line as you are saying. Isn't a big part of your career your reputation/personal brand? Why would you risk tarnishing that for a someone who you haven't spoken to and didn't even ask for you specifically. I like to help people however I can, but I feel like that at minimum I would want to talk to the person first.

You should just be clear about in which way you’re referring them.

I’ve referred a few people who have been B/B+ performers and have relayed that on to the hiring manager. Not all jobs require rock stars.

A “referral” doesn’t *have* to mean “I stake my reputation on this person,” but it can if you don’t add context about why you’re referring them.

Thank you for your response and the example. I'm aware you shouldn't badmouth your company, if anything, you would come off looking worse to the majority of reasonable people. Atleast that's my perspective on the matter, after all you are the company you keep.

Yes, this definitely reflects badly on the referrer.

I assumed that was the case, I'm glad that perspective was confirmed. Based on how easily some people are so willing to refer on here with what appears to be very little information on the candidate, I thought that there might be something I was missing.
