After submitting a referral, click Referrals in the toolbar at the top of your Workable Referrals account. In this section, you will see the status of referrals you've submitted and your eligibility for rewards.
Note: Contact your organization's dedicated point of contact if you have any questions about the status of your referrals.
Active referrals are candidates who you've referred or who have applied through a link you shared on social media. They are "active" because the job(s) that these candidates are considered for are still open.
Active referrals can have one of two statuses:
- Under review: The candidate is in consideration for the job and has not been disqualified or hired. Note: From the time that a candidate gets disqualified, it takes 5 days for this to reflect on the Referrals section.
- Hired: The candidate has been successfully hired for the job
❗If the candidate you want to refer is already being considered (for example, if they already applied on their own, or if another coworker referred them), they won't be counted as one of your active referrals. Learn more here.
Archived referrals are candidates who you've referred but were not hired, or candidates who you've referred for jobs that are now closed. These candidates can have the same "Under review" or "Hired" statuses as active referrals, or they may have an additional status:
- Not hired: The hiring team decided that the candidate was not a good fit
- Past job: Since the candidates were referred the job has been closed and the recruiting process is complete
View statistics for all of your referrals on the right side of the Referrals section.
Potential rewards (for candidates who are still under review and haven't been hired yet) are also noted here with a dotted line outline. When a referred candidate is hired, the rewards will be tallied below with a filled-in background.
Important: Rewards will be granted based on your company's referral policy. Workable's Referral platform may not account for your company's policy. Rewards that you are eligible for will update when a candidate is hired, but may not be paid out until other criteria in your company's policy are met.
