Employee referrals are consistently one of the largest sources of hires for companies. Employee referrals are also hired faster, have a lower cost per hire, and have a smoother onboarding and a higher retention rate. With CareerPlug, you can easily track which of your applicants were referred by your employees as well as send an email to follow up with those employees on the status of the applicants they've referred. Having an employee referral program integrated into your CareerPlug system will help you be more consistent with this follow-up, which can lead to even more referrals and even more great hires.

Here's how to utilize employee referrals with CareerPlug:

1.  On your Jobs tab, find the job that you would like to share. 

2.  Select the Share button underneath your job posting.
