Would you do this for your DH/SO? Edit.

Say your DH/SO was applying for a job somewhere and you realized you knew the hiring manager through your own job, would you put in a good word for your DH/SO?

I did this earlier and when I told my SO, he was really upset. He asked me why I did that and I said it's just networking. He still seemed kind of offended. Now I know not to do that kind of thing for him :-/ Damn I thought I was just putting in a good word for him since he's been unemployed for a few months due to a layoff from his last job where he was for 10 years.

Edit:

The hiring manager and I work at different finance offices. The loan companies here network between each other all the time. That's how I got my job. She came into my office and after we discussed business, I mentioned that my SO applied at her location and recommended him. That was it.

DH is a weapons tester. I don't know anyone in that field so that would NEVER come up. But if it did and he asked I would.

No my husband likes go get jobs on his own merit. Seems your husband is the same way.

I would never contact anyone regarding a work matter without my husbands consent. Weird.

FYI - men are kinda proud that way,

He's former military. That's how he got his job. To be honest he loves every second of his job. He comes home and talks about his day like he was playing with toys. Lol
