Tap into the talent pool that is already connected to your employees with Social Referrals. Any employee at your company can easily share job postings on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn using custom links that will track the origin.

Social Referrals can be found under its own tab on the Interviews page.


Click on “Get Referral Link” and choose from the list of published postings. It’s possible to share links directly from Lever by authorizing your Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn accounts. Sharing the link via copy/paste will work too.


Once a candidate clicks through a Social Referral Link and applies for the position, a new candidate profile will be created in the “New Applicant” pipeline stage with the Referral information already populated. A "Social Referral" source tag will also be automatically added to the profile. Use this tag to find all of the Social Referrals in your pipeline and reports!
