They message you, beg you to refer them jobs, buy you lunch, remind you of how far you go back with them, solicit help during interviews

Once they get offer (at Apple, didn’t get Offer from Amazon), stops talking to you. Doesn’t even reply to your message to congratulate them.

How dumb could they be? In a few years they might need your help again.

    That's BS. I got a referral for my first job from a dude I only met once. To this day, I'm grateful and can only hope to return tbe favor...

      Then you don’t really apply, do you? OP specifically mentioned “how far back we go”.

      I think he's saying that what the guy did to OP is BS (as in "not cool", not "a lie")

      I tend to do this. Surely people do it for different reasons. In my case it's usually nothing, but a bad habit. I first read message, think of a reply, and if I don't answer immediately I postpone for a day, two, then it's a snowball when I feel bad for not responding on time, so I postpone even more.

    At least you got a referral bonus. Be happy about that
