You need to have a really good resume even if you are getting a referral. Referrals don't guarantee interview though

The referrals will most likely get you an interview. Then it is up to you to convince the people in front of you to offer you a job. I have seen multiple people getting referred but have yet to get the job. Also, it depends on who gives you a reference. The higher up, the higher the chances of getting a job.

Referrals will give you the most probability to be invited for interview. Reason why this community had a specific bowl for hat purpose. Once you get noticed and invited for an interview, the rest will be up to you. You will now be judged according to your skills and competency.

I agree. A referral will most likely get you scheduled for an interview. But it won't guarantee anything after that.

It can help but it's not the be all end all - a well optimized resume definitely helps in getting through the ATS

Is it okay to share offer letters that we have with other company recruiters? Aren't offer letters strict and confidential. Can we refuse to show the same or what can we do in these situations.
