I recently interviewed for a company. I liked the company, I think they liked me, they made me an offer but I turned it down (because I had a "better" offer and for personal reasons). We left in good terms (and, maybe, in the future, I could think about re-applying for this company).
Now, one of my previous coworker is looking for a job in the same sector and geographic area where this company was, and I know they are still hiring. Am I in a position to recommend him to this company ? I would like to help him if possible but my questions are :
- Would it be inappropriate given the circumstances ?
- Am I taking a risk by doing this (if he doesn't fit there -- given I think he is a good guy but I never followed closely on his work)
- Is there a possible reward for me here ? (If I were to apply again in the future) ?
