LinkedIn Job Referrals BETA

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 5:10pm Monday 30 March 2009    Print Article

LinkedIn are currently beta testing a further refinement to the job referral function. If you are “not interested in this job” you can forward it to someone in your 1st or 2nd connection network. The list is automatically populated against your connections job function & industry to get the best match.

From the example below you can see that the job relates to a Business Development Manager listed in the “Law Practice” industry. LinkedIn has populated connections that I may know, or my friends may know, to send the role to in the legal & business development industry.

The “matching” is still in beta, but its interesting to see the latest developments in the referral space. One of the questions on my mind is there any referral bonus to be paid to the referrer?
