Frequently Asked Questions

Independent Recruiters
If you are an independent recruiter, working with Reflik is easy and rewarding.

Here is how it works: We Help employers post their open jobs on the Reflik Platform. Each job has a referral reward listed on Reflik.com. Independent Recruiters can register for free, review jobs and start referring candidates.

Upon receipt of candidate profiles, Employer can shortlist or reject your candidate. If your candidate is selected and hired, you are eligible for the listed referral reward.

If you are an Independent Recruiter and would like to join the Reflik, you can register by clicking here.
Reflik is free for recruiters. There are no costs or monthly fees for independent recruiters to use Reflik.
Reflik makes money when you, as a recruiter, help us make placements. With each job listing, there is a referral reward – which is your reward if a candidate is hired through your referral. Reflik will be paid an agreed upon placement fee by employers if a candidate is hired through Reflik. We will keep a small portion of the fee as our platform fee and pay you the full reward amount advertised on the platform, if you referred the hired candidate.
Independent Recruiters often find that they can make more money using Reflik. Reflik also gives you access to jobs that may not have been available if you weren’t a “preferred” vendor. Instead of spending time cold calling, negotiating contracts, getting on vendor lists and collecting fees, you can spend your time doing what you enjoy, recruiting more candidates.
Reflik generates more opportunities and an additional revenue stream for headhunting businesses and independent recruiters by providing greater access to new job orders and customer leads. The opportunities we offer on Reflik can significantly increase the volume of placements and revenue for you.
If you are an Independent Recruiter and provide a candidate that accepts employment through an Employment Opportunity that has been published on Reflik.com, you will be paid a Referral Reward within 7 days of the referred candidate’s completion of the guaranty period. We are only liable to pay you if we are paid by the Employer for the candidate you referred. You can choose to receive a check via mail or we can direct deposit Referral Rewards electronically in an account designated by you after your referred candidate completes guarantee period. Prior to making payment to you, we will need you to provide the name of the legal entity to be paid, account information in the event that we are to make payment electronically, as well as the applicable EIN or Social Security number and W-9 form. We reserve the right to request any additional information that we may need in order to pay you a Referral Reward.
With easy access to hundreds of open jobs, Recruiters can place many of their quality candidates and generate substantial incremental revenue. Many "retained only" search firms have joined Reflik to offer contingency services. With no start-up or memberships costs, qualified recruiters have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

In addition, our smart matching algorithms can help you quickly match your database of candidates to open positions with click of a button. The referral process is very easy and helps you make more placements.
Reflik genuinely believes in creating opportunities and possibilities for recruiting professionals. Our concept was introduced by recruiting professionals with recruiter’s interests in mind.

When you are trying to place a candidate for your client, you typically screen multiple candidates. Usually, you can only place one candidate at a time for one position and most recruiters store other good candidates in their database. Reflik offers opportunity for recruiters to leverage their database to make more placements, faster. Our candidate matching algorithm makes it simple you to match your database candidates with our open jobs without a lot of extra work.

Reflik also has exclusive listings that aren’t available in the open market so you can make more money by recruiting for those positions as well.
Many of our jobs are currently technology-focused but employers from a wide range of industries use Reflik. We work with small, medium and large Fortune 1000 enterprises across the U.S.
We value your privacy and your candidate database. Your candidate profiles are not searchable. Other than the employer to whom you submit a profile to against a specific job, your candidate profiles are confidential. Privacy and security are of utmost importance to us and we encourage all members to read Reflik’s Privacy Policy.
No. Just as your candidate profiles are private, Reflik does not offer resume search database.
Yes. This is to save your time as well as the Employer’s time. We require that you include a candidate’s contact information so that employers can ensure that the same candidate you referred has not been in touch with that Employer for the past 180 days directly for the same or other positions. As long as there is no verifiable proof that the candidate has applied (directly or indirectly) for the same job, you will get credit for the referral.
Employers want to see candidates that they don’t already know about. Candidates who applied to an employer outside of the Reflik’s portal in the preceding 180 days directly “belong” to the employer, and not to the recruiter. If the employer hires a candidate that they already were in contact with (in the past 180 days), neither you nor Reflik will receive credit for this referral and the employer doesn’t owe a referral fee.
If you are the first recruiter or individual to submit a candidate for a job, the candidate “belongs” to you for that particular job for a period of 180 days. If the employer hires one of your referrals for that job within that time frame, you earn that fee.

If the candidate you refer was submitted for a different job within our system by someone else, then the candidate “belongs” to that recruiter or individual for that particular job. Our system prevents a candidate from being submitted twice for the same job but in the unlikely event that happens, the candidate ownership credit will be given to the recruiter who first submitted the candidate, based on a time stamp in our system.
We typically provide a 60 days replacement guarantee to employers. The guarantee period may vary for certain employers, it could be 90 days. If a candidate is hired but does not work out for any reason during the guarantee period and the candidate’s employment is terminated (voluntarily or due to cause), Reflik may, at the client’s discretion replace that candidate and hence we would ask you to find a replacement. Since your referral is based on a successful hire with payment subject to the candidate completing the guarantee period, in the event candidate leaves prior to guarantee period and replacement candidate has not been identified, Neither you nor Reflik will receive the referral reward.
You only own a candidate for the specific job(s) that you have referred that candidate for, using Reflik. You can introduce a candidate to more than one job if you believe that candidate is a fit for other jobs as well.
You can’t re-introduce a previously hired candidate for at least 6 months after a placement. This helps an employer avoid candidates who aren’t committed to staying at a new job and is part of the good service we provide to the employers.
Reflik pays Independent Recruiters only after it is paid by an employer and upon completion of the guarantee period mentioned above. If we get paid by the employer for the referral you made, you will get paid. Reflik will make every effort to collect from delinquent employers.
Reflik provides visibility in the recruiting process that protects our customers from common recruiting disputes. In the rare event that a dispute arises, we act as a neutral mediator to work out a settlement between parties. If mediation is unsuccessful, both parties can enforce the Terms of Use to the fullest extent permitted by law.
If you, as Independent Recruiter, already have an existing, documented, relationship with an employer, you can continue to work offline together or they can choose to work through Reflik, subject to our Terms of Use . The Terms of Use do prohibit taking new business developed through Reflik offline and parties attempting to violate this policy will be immediately removed from the portal and will be subject to legal recourse.
As a recruiter, if you are applying on behalf of candidates, you need to make sure you have spoken with the candidate and have his/her consent in writing (e.g. an email, fax, etc.)

In the event of duplicate submissions by other recruiters (when the same candidate is submitted by two different recruiters / referring parties), the party with the first time stamp (date and time when you referred the candidate according to our system) and proof of the candidate’s consent in writing prior to introducing him / her “owns” the referral.
You retain candidate ownership for 180 days for a specific job and employer for whom you have submitted a candidate. In other words, as long as the candidate you referred to the employer on Reflik for a specific job gets hired within 180 days, you will be eligible for referral reward.
You can call Reflik at 1 855 5 Reflik (1 855 573 3545) or send an email to recruiteralliance@reflik.com with your questions and one of our representatives will be able to answer your question via phone or email.
Employers
We understand that many employers may already have an internal recruiting team and may also use job boards and tools such as LinkedIn and other resources to find candidates. Reflik should be used as an additional sourcing channel to find qualified candidates. Unlike other platforms, there is no cost to join Reflik, and you only incur the referral fee upon a successful hire.

With Reflik, you are accessing networks of expert recruiters and individuals who have great connections to fill your jobs. Independent recruiters and other individuals on our network are motivated to fill jobs to place candidates in their database and to earn referral rewards. The fees that you pay on Reflik are a fraction of what you would pay to a typical headhunter. Reflik saves you time and money, and saves you the hassle of negotiating contract and fees with recruiters. Using Reflik is easy, quick and has many benefits for employers.
Just like using multi-channel marketing to find customers, in this competitive market, companies need to utilize multiple sources to find candidates for open jobs. Finding candidates from a variety of channels may help improve quality of candidate as well as help fill positions faster.
Candidate referrals come from variety of channels including individual job seekers, headhunters, independent recruiters and other members.

Independent recruiters as well as other users find that using Reflik makes them more money. Reflik also works well for headhunters because it allows recruiters to spend their time searching for candidates and making more placements. Individuals benefit by using their social networks to find jobs for connections and make money at the same time.
Reflik provides a 60-day guarantee. In the event that a candidate hired through Reflik’s referral system leaves or is terminated within 60 days of joining, just notify Reflik in writing and Reflik will work with you to identify a replacement candidate at no additional cost to you.
Reflik will generate an invoice immediately upon a candidate’s joining date. Payment is typically due upon the date that a candidate joins a company.
No, Reflik first filters candidates with a proprietary algorithm and then a personal account manager selects the ten most-qualified candidates from the talent pool, who are then sent to you.
Reflik has a proprietary matching algorithm that helps sort the candidates based on how strong they match with your listed jobs. In order for algorithms to work effectively, we require that you provide accurate and relevant job titles, skills and experience needed for the job. After the candidate pool is reduced through the algorithm, a personal account manager will select the ten most-qualified candidates for the posted job.
No, Reflik values your privacy and your contact information is not accessible from the platform. Only after an employer expressly chooses to engage with a candidate via our messaging feature, can the member contact you at all. After the initial contact, you may work through email or phone contact as desired.
No. There are no contracts with individuals or independent recruiters that employers need to sign. Except for information passing through Reflik, there is no direct communication with the recruiter or individual. All parties agree to Reflik’s Terms of Use when they sign up to use our platform.
Reflik provides visibility in the recruiting process that protects our customers from common recruiting disputes. In the rare event that a dispute arises, we act as neutral mediator to work out a settlement between parties. If mediation is unsuccessful, both parties can enforce the Terms of Use to the fullest extent permitted by law.
In addition to the social networks of our members, Reflik’s platform is made up of hundreds of independent and specialized recruiters throughout the country who place candidates in a wide range of industries and positions.

Reflik also offers On-Demand Recruiting Services through which you can engage a recruiter on a contract basis to get resumes or work with them until you fill certain positions.
A typical job posting is open for 30 to 60 days. While there is no time limit for the job to remain open, once a candidate is hired under a specific job, we require that you close a job and open a new job order, if applicable.
As an employer, you can post unlimited number of jobs provided they are legitimate and you have the authority and necessary approvals to pay referral fee advertised on Reflik.
While referral-based recruiting often provides a quicker time-to-hire, actual specifics depend on a number of factors affecting the attractiveness of the job listing including the job specifics and referral reward. We cannot provide a guarantee but most employers see results faster than other recruiting methods.
Employers from a wide range of industries and sizes use Reflik, including Fortune 500 companies and many smaller organizations located throughout the U.S.
Individuals and recruiters “own” the candidates they submit for a period of six months (180 days) from the date of submission only for that particular job for which a referral was made by the referring party. The employer owes a referral reward only if a referred candidate is hired within 180 days from the date of introduction via Reflik.
In the event that you received a candidate via Reflik that was already in your company database in preceding 90 days from date of submission via Reflik, you will have the option to reject the candidate with the reason of a “duplicate submission”. Please review the Terms of Use to learn more.
Our system prevents a candidate from being submitted twice for same job but in the unlikely event that happens, the reward will be given to the recruiter or individual who first submitted the candidate, based on a time stamp in our system. Employers will never be required to pay two referral rewards for the same candidate placement. Please review the Terms of Use to learn more.
No. Reflik's Terms of Use prohibits taking new business developed through Reflik offline and parties attempting to violate this policy will be immediately removed from the portal and will be subject to legal recourse.
Yes. By agreeing to the Terms of Use as an employer, you attest that you are authorized to advertise jobs on our company’s website on behalf of your company, and that you have authority to make payments in the event a person referred through this website for your job gets hired by you. If you hire any candidate that came to your company as a result of Reflik within 6 months (180 days) of receiving that candidate’s profile (whether through Independent recruiter or direct application or via referral), your company shall be liable to pay Reflik the advertised referral reward plus the platform fee. We encourage you to review Terms of Use and seek necessary approvals from authorized representatives of your company if required.
You can call Reflik at 1 855 5 Reflik (1 855 573 3545) or send an email to recruiteralliance@reflik.com with your questions and one of our representatives will be able to answer your question via phone or email.
Individuals and Jobseekers
When you refer a candidate (your friend or a social connection) to a job listed on Reflik and that person gets hired for that job based on your referral and once Reflik gets paid by the employer, you get the advertised referral reward.
For each qualified referral sent by you via Reflik that is hired by an employer, you will be paid a referral reward by Reflik after the candidate guarantee period (typically 60-90 days) from your referred candidate’s start date with the employer. Reflik can send you payment via PayPal (PayPal account required) or we can send you the referral reward via check once you have provided us with the necessary details to receive payment.
When you sign up, we collect the registration information: name, email, home address, telephone number, and work experience. We recommend that you review our Privacy Policy to learn more about the information collected.

If you refer someone and a referral fee is awarded, we will need your Social Security Number (SSN#), your EIN or TID. For US Residents, before receiving the referral reward, you will have to fill out a Form W-9 so that the income can be reported on a 1099.
No, we value your privacy and will not share your personal or professional information with anyone without your permission or knowledge. If you are a job applicant, we will forward the details you share with Reflik to complete the job application.
To make referral process easier for users, we help you download contact information of friends and/or professional connections from your email accounts and/or social media accounts.

- The connections that are brought to Reflik from your email account integration will be stored on your account as your network connections. These connections remain part of your own database and we will not share these with anyone.

- Social Media connections (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Google+) may be cached for 24 hours and are not shared with anyone. Reflik won’t contact them without your knowledge or permission.
No. Your profile is not searchable on Reflik, only employers to whom you apply for a job will be able to view your profile. We keep your profile confidential until you apply for a specific job or someone refers you and you decide to accept the referral.
Employers want to see new candidates that they don’t already know about. In order to qualify for the referral reward, the candidate (your connection) has to be “new” to the employer. We believe in rewarding the time and effort it took to make a referral but if the candidate was already in contact with the employer or was put in their database in the last 3 months, you won’t receive the referral reward.
If there multiple people involved in a referral chain, the referral reward will be divided like this:

- If A refers to B and B gets hired, A will get 100% of referral fee advertised (the normal way)

- If A refers to B, B refers to C and C gets hired, A and B will split referral fee 50:50% (two-level referral)

- If A refers to B, B refers to C, C refers to D and D gets hired, A and B will get 25% each and C will get 50% of the total referral fee. (three level referral)

If the referral gets passed on more than three levels – the last three people in the chain split the reward.
Accuracy of profiles and information/content on Reflik is solely the responsibility of the user. When you sign up for Reflik, you confirm that the content on your resume, including your experience and education is accurate and truthful. Any misrepresentation of information will result in deactivation of your profile and possible legal recourse.
Our “job share” feature in the member’s dashboard will generate a unique link to a particular job for you. You will get credit for anyone who applies and is hired using your link within 6 months.

Only the person who originates the job share link will be eligible to get referral reward. Even if someone else forwards or reposts that link without going through Reflik, the originator of the job share link (you) will be eligible for the referral reward if someone using the referral is hired.
Yes. The employer is obligated to tell us but while you are not contractually obligated, we ask that you let us know by sending an email to jobs@reflik.com. This helps you make sure that the person who referred you gets credit, plus it is a professional courtesy. If you self-applied on Reflik.com, you may be eligible for a gift card or joining bonus so it will be beneficial for you to let us know when you are hired using Reflik as a source.
Many of our jobs are technology-focused but employers from a wide range of industries use Reflik. We work with small, medium and large enterprises across the U.S.
We value your privacy – and the privacy of your connections. Profiles of your connections are not searchable. Other than the employer you submit to, candidates’ profiles are confidential. Privacy and security are of paramount concern and we encourage all members to read Reflik’s Privacy Policy.
Yes. This is to save your time as well as Employer’s time. We require that you include contact information so that employers can ensure that the same candidate you referred has not been in touch with that Employer for past 180 days for the same or other positions. As long as there is no verifiable proof that person has applied (directly or indirectly) for the same job, you will get credit for the referral.
Employers want to see candidates that they don’t already know about. Candidates who applied to an employer outside of the Reflik’s portal in the preceding 180 days “belong” to the employer, and not to the recruiter or individual. If an employer hires a candidate that they were already in contact with within such timeframe, you don’t get credit for the referral and therefore, neither Reflik, nor the employer will owe a fee to you.
If you are the first person to submit a referral for a job, the candidate “belongs” to you for that particular job for a period of six (6) months. If the employer hires one of your referrals for that job within that (six months) time frame, you earn that fee.

If the candidate you refer was submitted for a different job within our system by someone else, then the candidate “belongs” to the recruiter or individual for that particular job. Our system prevents a candidate from being submitted twice for the same job but in the unlikely event that happens, the reward will be given to the person or recruiter who first submitted the candidate, based on a time stamp in our system.
You only own a candidate for the specific job(s) that you have referred that candidate to using Reflik. You can introduce a referral to more than one job if you believe that candidate is a fit for other jobs as well. Hence we encourage you to keep checking Reflik periodically to find relevant jobs for you and your connections.
You can’t re-introduce a previously hired candidate for at least 6 months after a placement. This helps an employer avoid candidates who aren’t committed to staying at a new job and is part of the good service we provide to the employers.
We typically provide a 60-day guarantee to employers. This guarantee period may vary as some companies may have a 90 days guarantee period. If a candidate is hired but does not work out and leaves employment or is terminated during the first guarantee period, Reflik will be required to replace the candidate hired by the employer. Since your referral reward is contingent on a successful hire remaining employed till the guarantee period, if person you referred leaves within the guarantee period, you won’t get the referral fee and neither does Reflik.
Reflik pays referral fees only after it is paid by an employer and upon completion of the guarantee period of a candidate. If we get paid by the employer for the referral you made, you will get paid. Reflik will make every effort to collect from delinquent employers. With the quality of employers that use our service, this has never been an issue.
Reflik provides visibility in the recruiting process that protects our customers from common recruiting disputes. In the rare event that a dispute arises, we act as neutral mediator to work out a settlement between parties. If mediation is unsuccessful, both parties can enforce the Terms of Use to the fullest extent permitted by law.
According to the Terms of Use, your account will be deactivated if:

- You refer someone you do not know and that person says they did not permit you to introduce their profile through Reflik.

- An employer flags your profile for inappropriate or misleading content

- Reflik determines that your profile is not appropriate or has misleading content
