A job referral can be the best way to get a hiring manager to give your resume a closer look when you are applying for a job. Jobvite's Recruiter Nation Report says that employee referrals follow internal hires on the list of top-rated hiring sources. Job boards are third on the list.While a survey from Erin reports that employee referrals are five times more likely to be hired.

When you're referred for a position by someone at a company or by a connection you have in common with the hiring manager, and you mention this求职信中的推荐, you've got a built-in recommendation for the job in the first paragraph.

It's even better when the person referring you for a job can take a couple of minutes to personally mention you to the hiring manager.

How to Ask for a Referral for a Job

What's the best way toask for a referral?您可以通过在LinkedIn或Facebook等网络网站上发送老式字母,电子邮件或消息来要求转介。

书面询问

无论您选择哪种方式,都要以书面形式询问,而不是通过电话。这样一来,潜在的推荐人就有时间思考是否以及如何将您转介给您工作。与电话交谈相比,写作的下降也容易。

询问他们是否可以推荐您(并给他们一个)

当您要求某人推荐您时,不要问:“您可以为我写一封参考书吗?”或“你可以推荐我吗?”几乎任何人都可以写信或说他们会推荐你。

The problem can be what they are going to say. Rather, ask: "Do you feel you know my work well enough to refer me for a job at your company?" or "Do you feel you could give me a referral?" That way, your referrer has an out if they are not comfortable providing a referral for you, and you can be assured that those who say "yes" will be enthusiastic about your performance and will write a positive letter or give you a strong endorsement.

提出分享您的凭据

Especially when you don't know the person you're asking very well, or if they aren't familiar with your current work history, offer to provide an updated copy of yourresumeand information about your skills and experiences, so the reference provider has current information to work with.

Employer Referral Programs

Don't be shy about asking. The person who refers you may be able to earn some extra cash if you're hired. Many employers haveemployee referral programs提供的推荐候选人的奖金就业。

If you're a strong candidate, it's a win-win-win situation. You get the job, the employer gets a top-notch new employee, and the employee who referred you gets a bonus.
