There are a few different ways to use Simppler to refer your friends and connections. Simppler will automatically send you email updates along the way so you’re always kept up to date on your referral's progress through the hiring process!
When you first log in:
Simppler has done all the heavy lifting for you, picking out your best connections and matching them to open positions in your company.
By clicking the categories on the right, you can see all of your best recommendations, regardless of how you know the person, or best connections by school, work, or with an added bonus that your recruiting team has allocated.
The referral works best when it comes directly from you:
Want to get more of your friends hired? If you know a friend or former co-worker is actively searching and you see his/her profile pop up for a job, use Simppler to reach out directly to them.
You can see how you know someone (from school, work, or otherwise) and also what job they're being recommended for in the profile card, like below:
When you find a connection you want to refer, click the “Send message" button-
- From the screen that pops up, you'll be able to send an email to your connection with a job description and a message, giving them the opportunity to decline or express interest.
- You also have the option to change both the subject and body of the email, but don't alter the link that begins with www.simppler.com or they won't be able to apply via your recommendation!
When your connection receives a note from you, they're more likely to read it than when it comes from a recruiter. Happy referring!
To refer someone without notifying them:
If you're not sure your friend is actively searching, you can add the person to a passive candidate pool for your recruiting team. If your company's recruiters are interested in the person, they'll be able to ask your permission in Simppler before reaching out.
Click the "Endorse" button and provide some information about how you know the person, your confidence in their ability, and any other details to help your recruiting team get to know them better.
This action will not notify your connection. This is still counted as a referral, but is not as strong as connecting (messaging) the person directly.
