Portage, Michigan (PRWEB) August 23, 2004 -
The popularity of online job boards and the success of using networking to land a new job has prompted the next stage in the evolution of job placement - a new jobsite called ReferTalent.com.
It is well known that many, if not most jobseekers find their new opportunity through someone they know. In "The Executive Career Guide for MBA's" (John Wiley & Sons, 1995), Beatty and Burkholder cite research completed in 1990 that included more than 10,000 executive, managerial and professional job seekers. According to this study, 68% secured their jobs through personal contact (networking). Since then, the Internet has risen to play a pivotal role in job searching. Now ReferTalent.com takes the advantages of both and combines them into an opportunity to find a new job and make money at the same time.
Like many job boards, the ReferTalent.com site offers jobseekers the opportunity to search jobs in all fields and industries Â IT, Engineering, Medical, Finance, Sales, Healthcare and more. They can search by keywords, categories, and geographic preferences.
ReferTalent.com has some significant advantages, however. The biggest advantage is that candidates and their friends have the opportunity to get paid if they refer someone who is eventually placed in one of their positions. Next to each job posting rewards are listed that range from one to four thousand dollars apiece. Money is paid after a referral is successfully hired and there are no limits. Candidates can even refer themselves, which translates to a bonus of one to four thousand dollars when they land their next job.
ÂEmployees and their friends are constantly being pressed by recruiters for referrals, some of which have resulted in successful placements and big bonuses for the recruiter.Â says Donna Mathias, the creator of ReferTalent.com. ÂThe referrers might get a hearty thank you from the recruiter, but that is usually it. It only makes sense to thank them in a concrete way. By rewarding referrers, I am in a sense establishing a world-wide recruitment team. After someone receives a check for between $1000 and $4000 dollars, it only increases the chance that they will remember us when they or someone they know is in the job market.Â
The advantage for Employers and Recruiters is that they can post their job opportunities for free Â paying for advertising and recruitment costs only when a candidate is actually hired. Like contingency recruiting, itÂs a no-risk situation for them. The referral rewards offered to website visitors are paid out of ReferTalent.comÂs own pocket.
In addition, ReferTalent.com lists candidate profiles. Hiring agents can freely search through Candidates by keywords, categories, and geographic preferences. Employers, Recruiters, and Referrers keep track of their recruitment activity by logging into their accounts. Jobseekers and Referrers can post their anonymous Candidate Profiles for free whether they currently see a matching job or not. When a match is made, they receive the reward.
Confidentiality for jobseekers and hiring agents is no problem. ReferTalent.com personally connects the two parties without revealing contact information to the hiring employers and lets the jobseeker privately review the opportunities presented. ReferTalent.com also personally screens all candidates before presenting them to Employers and Recruiters to be certain they meet all of their requirements, saving them the trouble of weeding through stacks of unqualified resumes.
ItÂs the human touch added to the high technology that makes ReferTalent.com an attractive website for all Â Jobseekers, Referrers, Employers, and Recruiters. ÂInvolving everyone in the recruiting process by offering referral rewards strengthens the candidate pool that we can offer employers and recruiters. The thousands of dollars of referral rewards offered to website visitors are well worth their time.Â
