I am so glad to find that you work at *****.
Could you please give me a referral for SDE at *****? It will speedup the timeline of my interview process.
This is me in short:-
I am currently pursuing my Bachelor’s from *****.
Taking about my Technical skills, I am skilled in Data Structures and Algorithms. I have solved more than **** problems on LeetCode and counting. I am * star coder at CodeChef, **** rating at CodeForces, * star coder at HackerRank. I have solved more than **** problems on GeeksforGeeks as well.
Talking about my interpersonal skills, I am good in communication skills as well as good in working in a team.
I feel I am ready for **** interviews. I just need a chance.
PS :- Try to speak in numbers rather than stars bcoz it can happen that you are asking referral from a non technical person and he or she doesn’t know about these platforms or stars. So, it’s better to present them in a quantifiable manner.
