How can I track my referral?

Tracking your referrals:

Uploading a Friend"s Resume:

You sure can! Each position on the Social Sourcing site has an "Upload Friend"s Resume" button. Clicking this will prompt a window to appear, requesting certain information about your friend. Fill that out, upload their resume, and submit.

Once you"ve done that, an application will be started on their behalf with you tagged as the referrer. They"ll receive an email allowing them to continue the process, while you"ll be able to endorse the candidate, providing more insight to recruiters.

What are the "Top Referrers"?
