Having a current employee put you into their hiring pipeline via a referral is one of the most powerful ways to level up your job search. However, referrals are often misunderstood by software engineers. This lesson teaches you:

  • The 2 different types of referrals and which one is better (spoiler: engineers usually struggle getting the better one)
  • The massive difference between weak referrals and strong referrals
  • Why you are more special than you realize and how you can leverage that to get more strong referrals
  • How to approach professional networking properly to cultivate huge amounts of strong referrals over time
