Go to the job card and click on the button "Refer", located below the job title. A new window will pop up and you can fill in your friend's data, upload their CV and a photo.

Before you click the button “Next”, confirm that you have received the permission to use your friend's data for this referral. Due to data securty reasons, we highly recommend you to make sure that you have full permission from this person. Click here for further information.

On the next page, we will ask you to enter your feedback (process see "Feedback"). As soon as you are finished, click on the button “Send”.

Your work is now done. It´s the recruiters turn to screen the CV and rate the qualification of the candidate using stars. You will receive an email or a notification as soon as the rating has been completed by the recruiter. Read more about communication in Firstbird.
