Dolfins, Good luck with this. I've policy that persons applying for a job for some one else means the application goes in round file immediately.
See if you can help the person by steering them to apply in person because the employer will think they are not serious about wanting a job or mentally incompetent.
It's admirable you want to help but this might just hurt instead.
I occasionally have mothers ask me if I have a job for their son, it's hard not to laugh or make a smart alec remark but for sure it's the kiss of death for the son.
