My very odd little streak is intact. I am now up to 6 straight cases where when I have provided a reference for a person, they have gotten the job. The streak has stretched over several years. Also, for it to count I have to actually give a phone or written reference.
Of course, I'm under no illusion that they got the various jobs *because* of my reference. They all got their jobs because they deserved them in and of themselves. But at the same time, this little streak pleases me very much. - John Dupuis
