How To Best Utilize ReferJobs


Apple Vs Samsung, PlayStation Vs Xbox, Nirvana Vs Guns N’ Roses, Marvel Vs DC – there’s always a side that you need to pick, or is there? It’s not illegal to go for both so why not utilize the opportunity to go guns-blazing and aim for the maximum benefit?


Share or share not, there is no try

Obviously, the core of ReferJobs is the idea of job sharing and the rewards that comes along with it. There are two ways referrers can share jobs – through public sharing via their social networking accounts or sharing it directly through email.refer-jobs


Public sharing is when referrers share jobs from the ReferJobs page to his/her respective social network page, and then to their friends.

Just like posts on Facebook, referrers will be given the option to select who they want to share it with as well as the number of people to share with. This is highly important because it allows referrers to filter the list of people to share with which in turn reduces the redundancy of the job postings to be seen as spams on the news feed of their friends.

Direct sharing is a more personal as well a simpler approach to sharing a job. All the referrer needs to do is to click on the email icon, enter the recipient’s email and write a short message to notify him/her.


Fill in your details

Imagine that you’re searching for a new apartment. After months of fruitless searching, you finally stumbled upon an advertisement of an ideal place at a very reasonable price. You hurriedly reach for your phone to contact the seller, only to find that the seller did not provide his/her full contact details and thus you are unable to contact him/her. Get the picture?

Whether if it’s your full name, your IC number or your account number, for obvious reasons, you details are vital.


Be active on ReferJobs

One of the key of being an excellent referral is to be active on ReferJobs as things are always happening and it’s good to be on the front seat when new jobs are available. That way you could always share new jobs to your connections and stay ahead of the curve.


Keep up-to-date with your applicants

You don’t have to stalk your applicants like a hawk, what you can do however, is to keep tabs on their job application process – and you can do that by clicking the notification icon to keep up-to-date with all the happenings and goings.

Time is of the essence, so keeping up to date with your applicants ensures that no time will be lost and also ensures that the communication process will be smoother. Plus no one likes to be left hanging.

Just when you think things couldn’t be worse in this worsening economy, there are 200,000 graduates in this country that are still unemployed, according to Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) chief executive Shamsuddin Bardan.

He also said that both the government and private sectors need to take drastic actions to combat the worrying figures.

“The government and the private sector should work together to address this problem,” he said, as quoted by Utusan Malaysia.

“This crisis began back in 2013 when the government decided to increase the retirement age, consequently, the private sector did not recruit new employees to replace the current ones.

“The government has also cease to recruit fresh faces into the workforce, which are between 13,000 to 15,000 graduates. In the private sector on the hand, it’s largely down to the stagnant economy.

“Most organizations are taking the wait and see approach as the future remains largely ambiguous, while others are forced to retrench their staff.

Shamsuddin also added that many of the graduates do not command good English as they are mostly from rural areas.

“Some of these youths are from rural areas, and do not know how to be as presentable as their urban counterparts.

“This phenomenon will cause various social issues in the long run. I hope the government will give incentives to employers so that they do not have to retrench workers, and also award those who hire unemployed graduates,” he concluded.
