Referral Based Recruitment


Established recruitment theory suggests without the assistance of a recruiter, a passive candidate must be made aware of a career opportunity at least five times before becoming motivated to apply. This process of allowing a position to percolate through multiple industry channels is a “Hobsons’ Choice” approach to targeting talent, and simply takes too long.

“Our candidates are educated, prepared and primed for success”

Studies indicate that career site might take as long as 55 days, while job posting on a social media platform takes 39 days. Our referral based approach rarely exceeds 29 days which translates into a much shorter period for effective on-boarding.

We restrict our referral sources to known high performers

A person’s income is generally equal to the average income of a person’s five closest friends, so the old adage “birds of a feather flock together” bears some truth.

“Like Tends to Refer Like – They Refer Whom They Respect”
