How do you go about making a lateral move when you're referred by someone who currently works at the new company
[00:00:00] I was wondering about making a lateral move and I have a question when getting referred by someone already at the new firm. I want to work at how do you go about laterally?
Do you give your friend your resume transcript or cover letter and Brian Sanford a forward only your resume? How does this work? If you forward a long cover letter, what were you included? Okay. You have to be a little bit careful when you're getting recommendations from when you're sending your resume to friends and so forth and affirm about lateraling.
And the reason is when you're sending when you're getting you to send your resume and so forth to France because the big thing is that just because your friend has given the resume to the hiring people, you never know how good or what kind of quality of a recommendation the firm is going to give you.
And the, your friend is going to give you, so your friend, many time, friends are competitively each other. And so that your friend may not give you a good recommendation to the firm. So that's just something you should think about. And they may not say something positive.
And the other thing you never know how your friend is regarding the firm. So if your friend is someone who gossips and may not be the hardest [00:01:00] worker. You just don't know, they may hurt you our recommendation coming through them as opposed to someone else may not be a good thing.
So I would be careful. I noticed that a good proportion of the time. And when I say the good proportion of the time, I would say 25% of the time when someone gives a resume to a friend, the friend never gives it to the firm. So they tell them they're going to do it. And they don't, I don't know why that is.
Maybe friends are competitive with each other and maybe their friend doesn't want the other person to work there, but that happens quite a bit. So you need to be careful about if you're giving your resume to a friend what exactly if the resume is making it to the right person, let me just see, I'm gonna try to pull this up for you so I can just show these questions.
