How do I refer a friend?
We are proud to present the SkillSet Group Referral Program. This program is very simple to participate in, and benefits all parties involved. The program relies on you, the person filling out the referral form, to refer your friends, colleagues and acquaintances to our company. With the information that you provide, one of our experienced recruiters will reach out to the person(s) that you have referred to see if they are willing to explore the various new opportunities we may have with our clients.
Like any great referral program, there is always a monetary benefit for a successful placement. The SkillSet Referral Program has a tiered payout structure which increases every time a person you refer is successfully placed. By definition, a successful placement is when the referred candidate is placed with a client and has completed ninety (90) working business days. Once the ninety (90) days has been completed, a check will be sent to the referring individual. For a complete break-down of payout amounts, please refer to the Candidate Referral Program Form.
All information that is needed for the program comes from the Candidate Referral Program Form. Complete the form and return it to your SkillSet Group Representative via e-mail or e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org
