Does referral (a random one e.g. from someone at MBB whom you don’t personally know), make a difference in applying for roles with MBB?

Yes. It will get you at least a resume read by a recruiter as opposed to being automatically screened out. It may help you get the process started a bit faster too. If it’s a partner referral it may help move the needle for getting a 1st round interview. It won’t help much beyond that.

Tell me why ? If you don’t know the person, the most you’re doing is uploading the resume through the referral process or emailing it directly to a recruiter/recruiting inbox.
