Dover's Referrals product makes it easy to surface great candidates from within your team's network. Once Dover discovers, scores, and brings these potential candidates to your attention, you can work with your team to strategize about the best way to reach out to them and pitch your company and the roles you're hiring for.
The first step is to have your teammates provide information about who they're connected to through Dover.

Inviting Your Teammates
We recommend sending the following email (or something similar) to your team, providing them with helpful context and direction:
We've been using Dover to help us manage and automate much of our recruiting process and now we're going to use Dover to handle referrals as well.
Below is a link to upload information about who you're connected to on Linkedin. Dover will use this info to surface connections who might be good fits for our open roles.
Once Dover surfaces potential good fits, we'll work with you individually to determine if they really are good fits and how to best reach out to them.
Reviewing Processed Connections
Once your teammates have uploaded their connections, Dover will take some time to process and evaluate them. From there, those connections we think are good fits for the jobs you're hiring for will begin to appear on this page.
Once you start seeing connections appear, we suggest:
Communicating with the employee whom they're connected to and confirm whether or not they would be a good fit for the job.
Strategizing with that employee about who should reach out to their connection.
Dover's Referrals product is relatively new and we have big plans for where we can take it. If at any point you have ideas for how Dover could make managing referrals easier for you, we'd love to hear from you!
