I'll be starting at MBB (post-MBA) in the US very soon. I was wondering if it would be frowned upon for me to refer a family member (my husband). For what it's worth, I truly think he'd be great and he is very smart, but he is at a non-target and so might have a harder time than I had to get an interview. If he gets an interview, I think he could do very well.
I haven't heard of any rule against it (apart form the fact that I of course would not be allowed to participate in the hiring process whatsoever), but was wondering if it would be looked down upon and could reflect badly on me?
And if I refer him, do I need to disclose that he is my husband (I know I do if he was to work there eventually, but what about for the referral itself)? And would it be better for me to wait a year before referring him (so I've "proven" myself already)?
