I'm currently serving my notice period in a company I've been working at for a few years now, and there's a few more weeks to go. My company is a large corporation with offices all around the world.
A friend of mine (who I believe is qualified for the job) asked me to refer him to a position in one of our offices in our home country, where he currently resides, and I have no problem doing so. The role is not related to my work, and he will not be a replacement for me; it's an unrelated department.
The question is: Are there any potential red flags or negative repercussions on that friend if I refer him a few weeks before leaving myself? How should I approach the situation? I don't care about any referral bonus. I do not know the manager I am referring him to, since he works in a different country and we haven't interacted previously.
