I have several alumni at Partner level (obviously much older than me) with whom I can get in touch. But should I really focus on impressing the Partners, or the Associates?
School of thought 1: Associates have more incentive in referring (as they care about money), as partners don't really care much about theor so they'll get for a successful referral.
School of thought 2: Partner's referral would be stronger (obviously), and more likely to work (whatever that means)
Please provide your inputs.
