Double recommandation > Single one ?

Anonymous A asked on Mar 13, 2019

Dear Preploungers,

[Context] I am currently applying to MBB firms and securing insider recommandations in that perspective.

[Question] I am wondering what would be the impact of a doubly recommanded application.

[Hypotheses] By doubling the referral occurence, does it convey a stronger profile that should be "more" invited as it is not only coming from one but two employees ? or is it totally neutral, if not counterproductive to pollute HRs with duplicates ?

Looking forward to your views on the matter. Thanks for your inputs.

Dear Anonymous,
It really depends on your profile. If you do have "a non target profile" (week GPA, Non target school or not top notch internships/experience), that might help.

Otherwise, It is quite useless and sometimes frustrating for HRs if they want to get through the screening process to do it twice.

Thus I would recommend double recommandation only if one is by mail and one is verbal (someone going to HR saying you're a very strong candidate)

I hope that helps,
If you have any follow up question, do not hesitate to reach out.

The double recommendation does not make any sense, however, the higher the position of the person recommending you is - the better.
