Referral Process

Job Share

The job you would like to share contains the button “Share“. Click on this button and a drop-down menu will open up. This menu will give you three sharing options:

  • Social network

If you would like to share this job via LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter or Xing, you need to be connected with your social network account (get connected in “My Settings”  - “Connected Networks”). A new window will open up as soon as you click on your preferred network. Enter a personal message and click the button “Share”. The job and your message are now shared on your social network.

  • Email

Would you prefer to send the job directly to a friend? Use the email function to inform your friend. Click on “Email“ and a new window will pop up where you can enter the email address of your friend and a short message. Close your share by clicking the button “Send”.

  • Link

This function gives you the opportunity to share the job on a network that has not yet been mentioned above. In the new pop up window, you will see a link which you can “Copy” easily.

Where to find: Menu Bar - Jobs - Active



There are two ways how new candidates come to Firstbird:

Either via a referral (direct) or an application (indirect).

It´s an application if a candidate applies through a shared link from a Talent Scout (social media, email or link). The resposible Talent Scout will receive an email about the new referral and will be invited to give his feedback.

For a referral, the Talent Scout enters the candidates data first and give his feedback afterwards. For this way it´s important that the Talent Scout has the permission to forward the candidates data.



There are two different ways to receive new candidates in Firstbird:

A new candidate can come through a referral (direct) or an application (indirect).

It is a referral, if a Talent Scout refers someone directly.

Read more for further information about the referral process for the Talent Scout.

For data security, it is very important that the Talent Scout receives a written confirmation from the candidate to forward his personal data. The Talent Scout therefore has to activate the checkbox during the referral process.

If you have any questions with regard to data security for the direct referral process, please don’t hesitate to contact us via [email protected].

Please note!

The "Refer" button is no longer displayed if you or another Administrator have deactivated this function in the "Account Settings".
