your job search Shortcut to a new job:
Tap an insider
he surest way to get your foot in the
door is a referral by an employee. Com-
panies agree, employee referrals are
the go-to source for hiring.
Why Employee Referred Candidates Are Better
This isn’t a new fad. Companies have always
used employee referrals, formally or informally,
to fill positions. The logic is simple, if you are a
good employee, chances are good that you have
friends who would make good employees.
Improve Your Odds
Your chances of fast-tracking through the com-
pany’s recruitment system may be greater if you
get a company insider to refer you. One company
cited in the NY Times article said that referred
employees are 10 times more likely to be hired
than other applicants. This provides employees
with a greater incentive to refer candidates. Ac-
cording to the CareerXroads study, it takes 10 re-
ferrals to get one hire versus 72 applicants from
other sources to get one hire. So where would
you invest your time and effort?
Leave No Stone Unturned
If you are thinking you don’t know anyone inside
companies you want to work for, think again. You
likely have connections that you are unaware of.
Start by creating a list of all your closest friends.
Next, list the companies each contact works for.
Do you know where their family members work?
These are sources of referrals too.
If you are using LinkedIn, it is easier to collect
this information, assuming you are connected to
all your friends on LinkedIn.
However, you may realise that you use Face-
book to keep in contact with family
and close friends. You can search
Facebook to see where people work,
as long as they have included this in-
formation in their profile.
If you aren’t using social networks
or your networks don’t include all
your friends, map this out on paper.
And don’t forget to use other tools
and apps to find connections when
you apply for jobs.
Strengthen your network and stay in
touch with friends, family, and past
Due to advancements in technol-
ogy and the growing use of social
networks, this has become easier to
do, and more employers are finding
their great hires through referrals.
Your chances of fast-track-
ing through the company’s
recruitment system may be
greater if you get a company
insider to refer you.
