Referral Help

Hey guys,

I'm currently in my last semester at a tech university in the U.S., hoping to land a job in Bay Area / Seattle. I've had trouble landing interviews w/o referrals and I was hoping you lovely people could lend me a hand.

The university I go to is well-known, I've got a 3.78 GPA, and have 2 internship experiences. I do not want to take any risks applying w/o referrals this time and am currently preparing through mock interviews with my roommie. I sincerely enjoy software(more specifically web) development, and I want to work in an environment where I can create value doing what I love. Additionally, I am confident with data structure/algorithms from consistently solving LeetCode problems and am determined to really crack the coding interview.

I've gotten referrals for Microsoft, Google, and Amazon and got interviews lined for Wayfair and Palantir. I would love to get SWE University/New Grad referrals for the following:
- Cisco
- Stripe
- Slack
- Uber
- VMware
- MuleSoft
- Twilio
- Paypal
- Facebook
- Netflix

I know the list is long, but any help would be greatly appreciated. Good luck to everyone interviewing and thanks for reading 🙏
