These days, it seems like a job referral is the only way a candidate can land an offer from a dream company. So the number of times a friend, family friend, or former colleague has emailed you to ask for a reference to work at your current company has probably increased over the years. You know the emailit reads something like: Hi Old Friend, Hope all is well. I saw that youre currently working at XYZ company. How do you like it? I was scrolling their job listings and saw a role that Im perfect for. Can I send over my resume for you to submit me as a referral candidate? In all likelihood, youre glad to hear from your friend and always happy to be a professional support. Plus, theres the financial incentive many companies offer current employees who refer top-notch candidates. But should you blindly or frequently refer friends to work at your current company, or even your former employer? Jamie Hichens, senior talent acquisition partner at Glassdoor, advises caution.

Then, prosecutors addressed her as "Madam President" but Kang will call her the "suspect". She had been "lost for words" when authorities asked for her arrest, the Chosun Ilbo daily quoted an unidentified pro-Park lawmaker as saying. Another said she had been having "sleepless nights and skipping meals" since moving out of the presidential palace. Park allegedly offered governmental favours to top businessmen who enriched Choi, including Samsung's Lee. She is also accused of letting her friend, a high school graduate with no title or security clearance, handle a wide range of state affairs including nomination of top officials. Park, daughter of late dictator Park Chung-Hee, is also said to have ordered aides to leak secret state files to Choi, and to have cracked down on thousands of artists who had voiced criticisms of her or her father's iron-fisted rule from 1961 to 1979.

President Donald Trump gained his first ambassador Wednesday when attorney David Friedman was sworn in as America's envoy to Israel. Vice President Mike Pence administered the oath of office to Friedman and hailed Trump's decision to nominate his former bankruptcy attorney for the sensitive diplomatic post as “one of the clearest signs” of the president's commitment to the state of Israel and the Jewish people. “The president of the United States of America is a lifelong friend of Israel and the Jewish people and, under his leadership, if the world knows nothing else the world will know this: America stands with Israel,” Pence said as Friedman's wife, Tammy, their five children and most of their grandchildren watched. Ron Dermer, Israel's ambassador to the U.S., also attended the ceremony.

MSNBC devoted a segment on Wednesday to analyzing the Trumps' marriage and whether First Lady Melania Trump is happy. Host Kate Snow was talking to the Washington Post's Paul Schwartzman about his recent article on Melania and her public appearances. Snow asked Schwartzman about whether Trump was uncomfortable in the role of first lady. Schwartzman said it seems that she was. "She's a model who lived with this rich guy, and now she is the first lady of the United States and that’s a whole different ball game," Schwartzman said. "And yes, she looks really uncomfortable." Snow also brought up that a friend of Melania's told Schwartzman that she was happy. "Yeah, I mean, you sort of expect that they’re going say that," Schwartz said. "I was a little surprised that she actually vouched for the quality of the marriage, because, you know, given Mr. Trump’s history, you know, there’s certainly a lot of questions about him and his relationships with women.
