I wonder what you think about this: I recently got contacted by headhunter, proposing me a job as SW engineer (embedded). I ignored it at first but then remembered that I know someone who is looking for a job and who would match the profile.
I asked the headhunter if there would be a bonus for me if I could refer someone that would eventually take the job. They offered 150.- which I find pathetic considering the amount they (presumably) would get. On the other hand my effort in this is close to zero and it would be nice to help someone to a new job. So I will certainly refer the guy (he said he’s OK with that) no matter what. I just wonder if I should bargain a little with the headhunter before giving him the contact detail and how much I should ask for.
What do you think? What would you do?
