Contact for job applications

Having a middleman who knows well both the job applicant and the hiring manager can help a lot, compared to submitting and examining job applications in the dark.

However, if I were the hiring manager, I would prefer the candidate to contact me directly (and cc/mention the reference in the email). This is more direct and sincere; the job is between the candidate and me, not the reference. And I can ask the reference for more information if I need.

Background: After sending out a job inquiry email on behalf of a candidate, I realized this is probably not ideal as I recalled my corporate days.
