Ask for referrals

  • SmartRecruit


The last step in the job creation process is sharing the job to find referrals. Here, you can invite your coworkers to the My Referrals portal, where they're able to connect their social media sites including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, and recommend their colleagues for the position.


Ask for referrals

To share the job via email, just start typing the email address(es) of the people you’d like to invite. You can enter any email for people outside of your company or other users within in your SmartRecruiters account.

SmartRecruiters will try to match the email address to other users in your SmartRecruiters account, and will retrieve users with similar addresses. 

You can use SmartRecruiters' default message template (which includes the job ad in entirety), or click Preview and customize it.Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 11.22.46 AM.png

When you're ready, just click Send to send out the referral emails. Emails will contain links to the My Referrals portal,  which is your organization’s single place to manage your employee referral program.

When your referees log in to the My Referrals portal and connect their social media sites, they'll be able to: 

  • See recommendations from SmartRecruiters for people they can refer based on keywords in their contacts’ profile.

  • Message potential referrals or ask if they know someone in their network that would be a good fit. 

Share on social networks

You can also share the job directly from this page to social media networks (LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter) to maximize exposure.

Note: Yammer has been removed from the list of default social networks as of January 2021
