How can I track my referral?

Tracking your referrals:

1. After sharing your unique referral link, your friend/contact will enter the site as a referral from you.

2. Once your referral starts their application, you will receive an email notification making you aware of their activity.

3. Within this notification you will be presented with the option to share your insight regarding the candidate. This endorsement will go to Military & Veterans"s Talent Acquisition Team.

4. Should you wish to follow-up further on the applicant"s status, you will need to reach out to the appropriate Military & Veterans recruiter and/or hiring manager.

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"?
