Looking for referrals after graduating from Leetcode

I just finished practicing with Leetcode and I feel confident tackling onboard technical interviews. I made it to google onsite, I solved all interview questions by delivering running code for optimal algorithms O(N) and O(log N), but didn't get an offer where the feedback was: strong coding, strong algos and data structures but communication was not good enough for them (which I understood, I felt during the interview that the interviewer was only interested in making me get his idea, where I was trying to explain him my idea for the solution).

Before my brain gets rid of all the leetcode memories, I would like to interview with a few other companies like:
LinkedIn
Facebook
Microsoft
Amazon
Lyft
Uber
Airbnb
Apple.

Are there any generous people who would like to sacrify a referral?

Thanks,

    • My guess is he wants to see if you can immediately solve a problem to see if you're worth referring. It's not a bad idea. :)

    referral from a stranger is pretty much useless.

    You might think that you solved the question but you didn’t...
    The feedback was there to make you feel better about yourself :P. I was in the same position as you are a few months back - and I solved 600 questions - hard included.
    Gluck my friend!

    Thanks, I would also think so in general. But the questions were not tricky to not know whether the solution was working or not. I also was checking with my interviewer to see whether I'm on track or not and reviewing the final solution with multiple inputs.
