I'm in the view they do. I've been offering a pretty generous fee of $2000 if someone is referred that I can help land and about 1/3 of my 2008 placements came via such referrals. My average placement is $20k, so I'm offering about 1/10 of the fee. I also get referrals where the fee isn't offered- the $2k referral is usually more pro-active in nature via linkedin and email marketing.

Yes, folks refer candidates as they like and respect my work- but I'm more then willing to offer the fee as I believe it's an added bonus especially as a lot of contingent firm recruiters can't offer the fee as they're working for someone else.
