Recently I was having a chat with someone from career services at Universiti Malaya. He mentioned it would be cool if he could see all the people in his network who were looking for work, that could fit a particular job.
With my mind in overdrive, we just released a feature that does exactly that. We hope recommending friends to a job is even easier now.
Step 1: Open your news feed, and see which of your friends is hiring
Our algorithm will immediately select people in your network that are looking for work who could fit this job
Step 2: Select a friend to recommend
Simple as that!
Recently a friend of mine had given me a call and he said he knew this great programmer, Mohammad, and was wondering if I had any openings in my company. I said no, but will see if there are other companies I can refer him to.
Here’s how I helped recommend Mohammad to a job.
Step 1: I sent an email invite to Mohammad
Step 2: Once he accepted my invitation, I got an email that he signed up to TribeHired.
I then went to the Peoples page to view his resume
Step 3: I viewed jobs that were matching him, and selected one
Step 4: If Mohammad is interested, the hiring manager will immediately get his resume and schedule an interview with him
The entire process was painless, while I helped someone with a big pain point, finding a job. And I think that’s special.
Employee referral is one of the most powerful ways to recommend someone to a job.
You are aware of your company culture, and you want to recommend someone who is one the same wavelength. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could see which of your friends’ friends are actually looking for work, so that you can intervene at the right time, and get them to consider that job in your company. At the same time, someone you can connect with over lunch : )
Step 1: Make sure you’ve been invited as a co-worker to your company
Step 2: View your company newsfeed to see people who fit jobs in your company
The cool thing about this news feed is that it not only shows people who have an intention to look for a job, it also shows people your friends recommend. So you kill 2 birds with one stone. A good quality talent and talent who is looking for new opportunities.
Step 3: When you click recommend, the talent gets an email to see if they are interested in the job.
If they are interested, their resume goes straight to the hiring manager.
These scenario solves 3 big pain points employees have when recommending someone to their company.
1. Are any of my friends, or their friends, looking for work that fits the job description?
2. Are they good talent to refer?
3. How easy is it to refer to them?
