In this article, we will go over the process of adding new members and setting up your referral program in TalentLyft. This is a great way to widen your candidate reach by adding your current employees to a referral program so they can additionally promote your jobs.
Each referral member you contact (via referral email message) can share a link to a job with their connections. Every candidate that applies via that unique link will be referred by that exact employee.
How to add members to the referral program
To add a new referral member or members, from the main Track dashboard, go to more options (for a random job) – Promote – Referral.
When adding a new member or members to a referral program, click on the Add new employee button. To add multiple referral members at the same time, click on the Bulk upload employees button.
For the bulk upload option, you will need to upload a CSV file containing information like first name, last name, email address & department, but only First Name, Last Name, and Email Address are required fields.
NOTE: To make your bulk upload even easier, you can use our CSV template, which can be accessed and downloaded from the Bulk upload employees window. Before uploading the CSV file, ensure that the document is saved and uploaded as a UTF - 8 file.
Please note that you will need to add referral program members only once, and they will appear on the list for every existing and all future jobs.
Asking referral team members to refer candidates for a selected referral campaign
After setting up your referral program list, you can select which members will be included in the referral campaign for a selected job.
To do that, go to the Promote step of that job and open the Referral tab. From the list of referral members, select which of them will be included in the referral campaign for this job by ticking the checkbox next to their name.
NOTE: If you want to include all the referral members from the list, tick the checkbox in the upper left corner of the list and confirm that you want to select all the members from the list.
You can now click on the Send email button and customize the email message that they will get.
After you click Send, each referral member selected for this referral campaign will receive an email containing their own share link. The job share link will be added automatically, and they can share it with their contacts so they can apply for the job via that link.
Because each member’s share link is unique, you will be able to track which candidate applied using which team member’s share link.
NOTE: You can also track the success of your referral program and the success of each member.
