The value of referrals

Total views: 4053 What is a referral? A referral is like a reward scheme where you can earn money for introducing candidates or clients to a particular service/business. A recommendation is always the best way to generate new business or to introduce a candidate to a potential employer. GR Law would like to encourage you to tell as many businesses and candidates as possible about our business. Your referral will not be overlooked by GR Law, as recommendations by word of mouth is a very powerful marketing source and if it generates us more business you will be rewarded for helping us!

Why are referrals important? Since the economic downturn the recruitment industry has experienced a dramatic decline in the volume of active jobs offering little prospect of sourcing vacancies for candidates. There are however some interesting opportunities for candidates with specialist experience for niche practices and sourcing the right candidate is a difficult process especially during an economic downturn. Referrals are an excellent way of sourcing passive job seekers. Recommendations from trusted sources (particularly from employees recommending ex-colleagues) provide very strong candidates.

Are online recommendations the new referral? Itís fair to say that most city professionals use LinkedIn as a networking site to build relationships with new clients or potential employers, however how many of us have LinkedIn recommendations and understand the benefits of this? An online recommendation acts as an excellent online reference for potential employers and clients to view on your profile making you stand out from the crowd. 

How do you get recommended online? Itís actually very straight forward. Itís recommended that you request a recommendation from a client or manager as this will have more gravitas. Please make sure that itís from a genuine source and not a colleague that works with you as this looks more like a desperate technique to increase your number of referrals and could discourage potential employers from considering you.
