- The person recommending you definitely know your potential and the kind of expectation they have from you. And you will never let that person down.
- The employer is stress free as they are not the real recruiter. So, the pressure of hiring a good candidate is completely up to the person who has given a reference for you.
- The employer is not flooded with the hundreds of resume just for one job vacancy. And ultimately it saves time. They don’t have to spend time going through and shortlisting the candidate for the organization.
