Tracking your referrals:

What does my social network post look like?

Social Network Posting:

Can I upload my friend"s resume?

Uploading a Friend"s Resume:

You sure can! Each position on the Social Sourcing site has an "Upload Friend"s Resume" button. Clicking this will prompt a window to appear, requesting certain information about your friend. Fill that out, upload their resume, and submit.

Once you"ve done that, an application will be started on their behalf with you tagged as the referrer. They"ll receive an email allowing them to continue the process, while you"ll be able to endorse the candidate, providing more insight to recruiters.

What are the "Top Referrers"?

Social Sourcing Top Referrers:

How do I become a "Top Referrer"?

The simple answer is... recommend jobs!

Each Social Sourcing user is given a score based on their activity. Points are awarded for sharing links, generating clicks, and/or getting someone to apply.

To view your stats, check out your referral activity on the portal page.

What if I don"t want to be included in "Top Referrers"?

No worries, we understand.

Your privacy is important to us, and thus, any user can prevent their activity from being shown on the Social Sourcing site. To do so, access the "Privacy" section of your user settings.

By deselecting the option to publish, your information will no longer appear in the "Activity Feed" as well as the "Top Referrers" sections.

Will I still get credit if they apply later?

You sure will. Any link you share through the system is unique to your account. So, if your friend comes to the site as your referral and signs up for job alerts, they are still marked as your referral. If, months later, they apply from an alert they received and are hired - you"ll still get the credit!
