Do you want to get interview call or want to find someone inside the company? The latter is a networking question. Maybe use GooglePlus/Facebook and check if a friend of a friend etc works there. Usually people will be ok to post resumes (as 'leads', not 'referrrals', as big companies normally pay their employees if their referrrrals get hirrrred).

There are ways other than referrals to increase your chances of getting a call.

Do extra projects/contribute to open source/write a blog/file bugs against their products etc.
