Extremely high

I reject them all the time. It just guarantees you an interview. I’ve run recruiting for our team for 7 years and I’ve rejected all but 2. It’s about your interview, not how you got there.

Surprising

Depends on the partner that referral might be an asset or a Liability to your hiring process. If a spiteful person for some reason has a grudge/ hates that partner you might get rejected out of spite

Low. I’ve only seen this when the candidate was way below the mark.

Very High you still have to pass all their tests. It just get's you the interview.

McK is right. Consulting is always hurting for talent. So chances are, you’d get the interview but you atill need to ace them (or at the least - do above average) to land the gig.

Could also be implementation based and not staff augmentation. Which goes up to c-level reporting, but also done at VP/Director levels
