man asking for money to provide job


I couldnt find a job for very long time. Now there is an opportunity but the man responsible is asking for money. Can I pay him money to provide me job? Will this money be counted as rishwat?

Assalamu alaykum
For an answer to your Query, I called the office of Sayyid Sistani and they said:
“This is not known as “Rishwat” rather, a payment  for his efforts to find you a job. Your intentions should be to pay him for the trouble he is taking to get you a job”
Kind regards,
