i want to send my resume for a position at Facebook but i need to use an acquaintance whom i am not really comfortable asking for a favor. I was wondering what is the Employee referral processes look like at Facebook from the employee side? what exactly does he need to do so i would know if i can ask this favor or not.
I've only referred one person, which led to an eventual offer. But it wasn't just submit and forget. Recruiter followed up with me a couple times asking detailed questions and checking to see if I could confirm or comment on some of their listed work.
If you haven't actually worked with your friend, they will probably just submit you as a lead.
