They don’t know how your HR handles referrals. Just say you did it and leave it at that. They can be left wondering what happened to their ‘referral’

And also most times companies have restrictions on new hires referring which could be 90 days or so before you’re actually able to refer. So this could be a good thing to bring up with them to have them simmer down.

Yeah just say “I put it through” or say of course dude send me a resume and cover letter and I’m happy to shoot it through. Most people won’t want to do the work for it and if they do just lie and say you sent them in

...already asking me for referrals to my new company and I haven’t event started yet! Not to mention I don’t think they would be a good fit and I know from working with them their work ethic is lacking. I’m afraid of damaging my credibility from the beginning by putting in bad referrals. How to do you kindly and tactfully decline a request for a referral?
