CareerBuilder Social Referral

Enable employees to earn real rewards by positively influencing their social networks with your employer brand.


Social Referral is an optimized, engagement-oriented social recruiting tool with features for both employees and recruiters to get more referrals by sharing your company culture and open job positions. It is an influential employee ambassador program enabling your employees to refer the right candidate through social media, direct messaging or email.

By doing so, your employees not only get a chance to earn real rewards, score points, gain benefits and compete with the peers, but it also keeps them engaged and motivated. Besides, it effectively eases out the recruitment process and helps your organization to find talented candidates, in an inexpensive way.

How CareerBuilder Social Referral works

Social Referral allows employees to share an open job position over several integrated social channels. Functionalities such as single click job referrals on social channels, emails and messages make sharing easy. It also enables recruiters to import jobs directly when integrated with the Applicant Tracking System or CareerBuilder Sourcing Platform. Tracking best ambassadors as per location and department gets easier as the embedded Employee ID and Job ID make referrals traceable for uniquely rewarding recruiters and hiring managers. The performance analysis helps hiring managers to improve their social referral programs and make it ROI driven.
