Ugh I’m overwhelmed by the referral process - if I’m applying to 10 jobs a day, how do I keep track and get that many referrals? What if I apply to multiple jobs at the same company - does someone have to refer me for all 3 positions or does it stay with my resume for each one?

It’s called networking. Why is this so difficult?

I can answer the second part of your question . I recommend for you to be submitted as a referral for each specific role within a company . Otherwise, your referral may not be visible if the job requisition is not managed by the same Recruiter.

Yes that is what I would recommend. Good luck 👍

I would not have multiple referrals for the same company & would only apply to one position per company

That seems like a lot of applications. Your time might be better spent networking for the smaller set of jobs you’re truly a fit for / interested in I think I’ve applied to about ~20-30 jobs in my whole career
