From my understanding, referrals are typically more helpful if you get them before you apply. Does anyone have any advice or experience in referral processes at specific firms? I'm coming up on senior year and FT recruiting. I want to get an understanding of:
1. How helpful is the internal referral for the firm in question? Does it get you close to a first round?
2. What is the referral process? Is it internal and attached to your application, or is it an internal note that then asks you to apply?
3. How can I help you get a referral bonus? Do I need to wait for the employee to refer me to apply (do not apply before hand).
Interested in MBB/T2/EYP S&. Thanks
