  • This is a common misconception, but a referral from someone who doesn't know you is worthless at most companies.

      At popular companies that get a ton of unsolicited resumes, a referral can get your resume in front of an initial recruiter/sourcer faster. Whether that even turns into an introduction call/email depends on the resume but most places I've worked ask for feedback on referrals onlybif they're actually in process.

      I dont like the idea of giving a blind referral. I want to know why someone would want to join zillow.

    If you feel short on options, have done C# and if dot-net doesn't make you want to puke, consider Roblox. They're kind of a hot mess inside but they are hiring like crazy.
