Remember: in recruitment, ie hire for tomorrow, not today

According to Mark Granoveter (1995), over 50% jobs are obtained via personal connection and not necessarily with a close friend. Many people believe that the closer an acquaintance the more helpful they will be. On the other hand, it has been shown that the more casual the acquaintance, the better the help. These casual acquaintances have different connections to you than your close friends and can be more objective in their evaluation of you. As well as improving your appointability, being referred to a role as many pluses for an employer, ie saves costs, reduces the need for reference checks, gives credibility, etc.
