Submitting a referral FAQ

Updated 3 months ago by Olivia Clark

We've compiled some of our most frequently asked questions about submitting a referral.

I already submitted my referral, but now I have new information to add.

Currently, there is not a way to retroactively add information to a referral after it has been submitted. To get new information to your recruiting team as fast as possible, send it to them directly.

I'm trying to submit a referral, but the form won't let me progress. What do I do?

Make sure that all of the required information has been filled out on the form. This includes your referral's:

  • name
  • company
  • job title
  • location

And at least one of the following:

  • personal email
  • work email
  • LinkedIn URL
I submitted my referral and it said that my referral is already in the system. Am I still eligible for the bonus?

Referral bonuses are specific to your company's referral policy. Please reach out to your recruitng team for details.

Will the person I refer be contacted when I click "Submit"?

No -- Drafted does not contact your connections when they are referred. However, when you submit your referral, the recruiting team will be notified and they will be able to reach out to that person directly. Make sure to note in your referral how you’d prefer the recruiters to follow up.

Does my referral also need to apply for the job I am referring them for?

Nope -- Your referral can apply directly if they want to add more information to support their application, but it is not required.

Can I refer someone to more than one position?

Yes! After you submit a referral, they will appear on the My Referrals page. From there you can click the "..." next to their referral and select "Refer Again for a Different Job" from the dropdown.
