My company at present is looking new IT recruiters. My close friend's girlfriend has just completed her Graduation and looking for a job. I really want to help her out and for that, I need to forward her CV to our HR Manager. Now, from the very beginning day, I and the HR Manager had a cold war, and it's still there. Now, if she comes for the interview without my reference, the chances of getting her selected is pretty low, as my company is looking for candidates with some experience. How to refer her?
Find out whether your company has an official process for referring candidates. If so, follow it. If not, hand the CV to your manager/supervisor and let them handle it.
If you are determined to hand deliver her CV to the HR manager you might try something like this: "Whatever disagreements you and I might have between us, this person would be good for our company and I think it would be worth it to consider her." (Of course, you have to really believe it if you're going to say it.)
