I don't understand networking for referrals . So I'm supposed to network with people (school alumni or work alumni) but not ask for a referral directly but still some how manage to get a referral?

Can someone please explain this process to me? Sounds very counter intuitive...

When I refer people I get lots of questions from our hiring team and I definitely feel that person is representing me. I’ve had coffee chats with folks go quite badly. I would not be comfortable referring them, if you can’t speak to me normally I’d worry about you with clients….

It’s awkward when they ask directly, if I’m comfortable with it I offer. When the coffee chat goes bad and then someone cannot read the room it’s the nail in the coffin when they ask super directly.

It is up to you. I ask for a referral right away when theybare friends or acquaintances. If I don't know them at all, I'd wait until the end of the first conversation or a very polite follow-up email with the role and my resume (always give them the option to say no if they needed more info or other).
