Make the referral process easier by letting your colleagues refer potential candidates directly to Teamtailor. This way you will easily be able to recommend a colleague, as well as keep all your referrals in the same place. Let's head straight into it! 

Press your profile picture in the top right corner and here select Employee dashboard. This will take you to a view of all published jobs on your account.

On the Employee dashboard, you’ll see a bunch of interesting information but for now, let’s focus on Open jobs and My referrals as these are relevant to this article.

Open jobs

Under Open jobs, you’ll see all published jobs for your company right now. See one that you have a great candidate for? This is where you can refer them! Just hover over the image and select Refer a candidate.

My referrals

Under the section My referrals, you can keep track of the status of the referrals you’ve added previously as well as add a new one.

This could be a good idea if you have a great candidate in your network, but can’t find the perfect role right now. Add the candidate to your general candidate pool instead!

Create the referral

When you are referring the candidate, you add the relevant information. Write the referral's name and tell your colleagues a bit more about why you want to recommend the candidate. This could for eg. be mentioning how you know the person and also why they would suit the position. Add the candidate to a specific job if you think it would suit them along with their email, phone number, and CV/resume if you have it. 

Please note! You can only refer a candidate to one job. If you think the candidate might be interesting for several positions, we’d recommend you to check directly with the recruiters internally.

Manage referred candidates

The candidate will appear in the inbox and will be treated as a sourced candidate. In the same way as a sourced candidate, they won't receive a Thank you for your application email. You will see that the candidate has been referred by looking at the pink tag in the bottom left corner of the candidate card. 

In the candidate card, you will see all the information that your colleague wrote about the referral. It will look something like this:

If you want to see all referred candidates head over to your candidate database under Candidates and click + Add filter. Choose Referred under the filter Candidate status to display all referred candidates.
