Asking for referrals on social media is an art. I want to share a tip: explain how you think you are fit for that role.
Maybe talk a bit about the work you did on those skills required for that role. It helps people who refer to make an opinion and better explain internally why they have referred you.
I understand, for many organizations out there, a referral is probably submitting a resume internally. But then, I’ve got to know that few organizations like Google ask the employee explicitly to explain why their referral is a fit.
Because, in the end, you would want to end up working in a place that you enjoy most.
By the way, my employer, Elastic, is hiring for a Developer Advocate
in India. So please let me know if you are interested, happy to refer you!
