I have a few opportunities to refer someone to my current employer. I know them personally, but can't speak to them professionally. If they don't work out as candidates, will this reflect poorly on me?
This is for a large company where I doubt I would be more than a field in a form of a candidate tracker, but one aspect of this is small vs. medium vs. large company. And this is a referral, not a reference. Obviously, I wouldn't give a professional reference for someone I don't know professionally, and a reference for someone who doesn't would out could definitely reflect poorly on me, depending on the circumstances.
