International Worker’s Day is celebrated around the world to support members of the workforce and it usually coincides with “May Day,” a public holiday in many countries. This year, in concert with International Worker’s Day, Reflik – the newest way that “workers” with great talent can find great jobs – is participating in TechCrunch’s Disrupt NY event held May 4-6.
Reflik and TechCrunch Disrupt NY
TechCrunch Disrupt is one of the premier technology conferences held each year in the U.S. The 2015 event starts on May 2 with a two-day “hackathon,” a 24 hour hands-on collaborative programming session. On May 4, 5 and 6, the Disrupt event starts every day with panels and breakout sessions featuring leaders from the tech industry. The afternoons are given to the “Startup Battlefield” in which 30 candidates pitch their ideas for the “Disrupt Cup,” but the most exciting part of Disrupt NY may be the exhibitors on “Start-Up Alley,” which includes the game-changing, referral-driven recruitment platform, Reflik.
Over 100 companies with new ideas in technology fill the aisles of Start-Up Alley. Each is there to showcase its company, its idea and its technology. Reflik is located in the “Enterprise” section which includes start-up offerings for business. Reflik is unique in its offering with a refer and earn algorithm used to match applicants to their dream jobs. Other participants in the enterprise category include a variety of cloud-based data and process management platforms and workforce solutions.
A revolutionary technology…
Reflik is set to revolutionize the tech recruiting vertical through their paradigm shifting referral technology. This exclusive process works by having Reflik members refer jobs to their social media connections and professional contacts in exchange for a referral award. The average referral reward for a successful hire is $5,000. Membership is free to anyone.
Employers and recruiters alike find that the concept is a game-changer in the way recruiting is done. An employer posts the job on the platform, determining a referral reward. The site then matches job requirements to users’ social media connections and unique links track those jobs back to the user who referred the job. When a candidate becomes a successful hire, the member gets the reward.
Employers find that the platform makes recruiting faster, more efficient and less expensive than a traditional headhunting firm. Recruiters can use the service as well, both from a traditional “recruiter” standpoint and as a “referrer” to their contacts. Some recruiters can make Reflik a primary part of their businesses and frequent users see a significant boost in income with the substantial rewards.
