One senior partner has forwarded my CV to a particular office. I checked with HR and she confirmed that but still asked me to apply on the website. This partner has 20 years of experience in automobile industry and has been with the firm for a long time.
My question is while evaluating will they take this into consideration because HR asked me to apply on the website as well. Do they mark something on their end when somebody forwarded the resume of a candidate?
I am going to do a follow-up in a couple of days as I have not heard regarding the outcome of my application. Should I remind them that I have been referred or will it be too pushy and will not look good?
