Refer a Friend


Need Help on this Topic? Email Support

The Refer A Friend Section is unique page which will allow the viewer of the careers site to send this job description to someone else. This can be used in a couple of different ways.

  1. A general viewer to the website can look at the job description and sent it to another individual
  2. A recruiter (or HR staff member, etc.) can use this page to send a job description to a potential applicant who is not in Cyber Recruiter (for example at a Job Fair) and doesn't need to be connected to an employee for a referral.
NOTE: The information does not get written into Cyber Recruiter and this should not be used as an Employee Referral since the information does not get passed on to the HR staff.

To set up the page, first set up the details by clicking on the Refer A Friend Edit link on the Job Description Page. Then change the setting to Yes on the Job Description Page.

Setup Page

The Refer a Friend link on the job description page uses the viewer's mail service instead of sending emails via the corporate SMTP server used by the system to send standard email. This functionality prevents the careers site from being used as a SPAM launch page.
