It’s as Good a Time as any for Another Employee Referral Tool

Among the recent moves by recruiting vendors (like a speak-with-a-geek app launch, a NY Times job site relaunch with RealMatch, and more) comes a new employee referral beta.

This — employee referral applications of one kind or another — is an awfully hot niche among talent-acquisition startups. The latest, out of Somerset, is Reflik.

In a nutshell, you use the Reflik site as a referral generator not just in the traditional employee-to-candidate way, but by taking advantage of a larger, who-do-they-know-who-knows-someone else social media community. Resumes are matched, and ranked, against the jobs.

You pay a fee not for posting, but rather when there’s a hire.

Reflik has nine employees, including salespeople, developers, and more marketing and advertising folks to come. Right now, the co-founders are the investors. Eduard Tilihoi, who I talked to today, says they’ll seek venture capital money soon.
