How to Find Applicants for Free

When new clients are struggling to get more or better-quality job candidates, one of the first things I ask them is…

Do you have an employee referral program?

Employers tend to be hyper-focused on wanting to get more applicants from job boards, however, where they need to focus their sourcing is within their own company…i.e., referrals from their employees.

And yet many employers don’t have an employee referral program set up.

Why?

Usually, it’s because they believe that…

-They don’t have enough employees.

-Or their employees don’t know enough people to make a program worth it.

But here’s the truth…

Whether you have 5 employees or 500 employees, an employee referral program can be hugely effective in increasing your applicant pool! 

I have seen time and time again how the companies I’ve worked with, as well as my own company, have benefited greatly from prioritizing employee referral programs.

So how do you create an effective employee referral program for your company?

Here are 3 simple steps.

1. Make it easy for your employees to share your open jobs. I.e., creating a shareable link.

2. Talk to them about it! Ask your employees to share the link on their social media accounts. 

3. Create an incentive for your employees. Whether it's public praise or a monetary bonus, creating an incentive makes the program more fun and makes your employee feel more valued.
