How To Increase Referrals from Candidates You Did Not Hire

If you have a candidate that you cannot place, give them a gift they can use. Why? It gives the impression that you care and that can easily translate into more referrals. When I was running a full desk, I gave out an ebook of job search strategies to everyone I met with and encouraged them to pass it on. What happened? A significant increase in referrals. (It works!) All that being said, please consider my (now) free ebook, "How To Find a Job Now (...and never have to look again!) and share it with the unemployed, under-employed and unhappily-employed people in your network. ;-)

Details of my ebook and the ebook itself is below. Thank you in advance!
