9 Ways to Better Employee Referral OR How to earn Employee Referral (Buddy Referral System)
1. Personal Social Connect.
- In this, an employee tries his level best to reach via his direct social connects be it a party friend or school days or college day’s friend or even local colony buddies.
- This is one of the ways where an employee tries harder to reach since it will be the direct contact and in the case of selection there will be direct bonding with the buddy and you.
- This type of buddy referrals is helpful for both for the employee as well as for the Hiring Managers since there is a high possibility of the candidate or friend joining the esteem organization.
2. Whatsapp Group.
- One of the best ways to make it for the buddy referral is to make it viral. The more viral you make the more the volume of resumes and accordingly you can filter and process the best as well.
- Make sure that you form a Whatsapp message in a format which may not hurt any firm’s sentiments or any firm’s client info or disclose personal details.
- Try posting in groups relevant to the domain or skill set. For e.g. IT Sector oriented openings only into IT related groups or Marketing or sales related openings only into the same group category else you may end up getting irrelevant resumes which will make your entire Whatsapp buddy referral income source a terrible mess.
- Make sure that you maintain your standards while drafting a Whatsapp message so that your direct or indirect friends trust you every time you send an opening to them.

- In this, you need to look for the latest updated resume from last 30 days for the skills where you have buddy referral open positions.

4. Facebook Buddy Referral Method.
- Its seems easy to connect and reach maximum but believe me, it’s also a way to get maximum irrelevant resumes. This Facebook method is one of the ways to reach maximum resumes, at the same time you end up getting irrelevant resumes as well.
- Form a Buddy referral message and post it on the major relevant skills oriented job groups only.
- For e.g. Washington Fresher’s will be the right group to post fresher’s requirements in Washington, same way make sure you give importance to the type of group corresponding to the skills and locations you are posting.
- This method will turn out to be a terrible mess if you don’t post the exact job criteria’s to apply else this method can make wonders to get the right candidate in a minimum amount of time.
- One thing which I observed is most of the HR Recruiters avoid this method since they already have various mass mail resumes and getting more resumes and then filtering in less time will be a headache on a longer term. So will recommend that you use it to the maximum.
- Also, most of the professional candidates don’t prefer applying via this method is because of the fake openings created in order to collect maximum emails or other required details from the candidate’s resume which is further sold to email marketing firms at a reasonable cost.
