You get platinum benefits, not your guests!

What A1 said is the right answer. You may however gift your friend with silver status and s/he will get whatever benefits silver status people get.

Only if you're flying with them.

Not even “only if you’re flying with them” A1 is on point. Has to be on the same reservation.

Yes sorry, I wasn't very specific, if you book the ticket and you fly with them then they'll get the same benefit that you get.

I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings. I am experienced in all aspects of HR. How are people with little to no experience coming right out of college obtaining higher level roles than I have currently? It makes my passion for the field just go away.
