Frequently Asked Questions About Reflik

If you are an independent recruiter or affiliated with a recruitment agency, then working with Reflik is easy and rewarding. Here is how it works: Reflik has job requisitions from hundreds of employers. Recruiters can fill these jobs and earn a placement fee for each successful hire. Recruiters can register for free, review jobs, and start submitting candidates.

Our clients (employers) shortlist or reject candidates. If a candidate you have submitted into the platform is hired, you get paid. Click here to learn more about the payment process. To start submitting candidates, click here.

Reflik is completely free for recruiters.
Clients pay us a platform fee after hiring a new employee. Reflik does not collect fees from recruiters. Placement fees are displayed on the right-hand side of the screen, next to each job requisition on Reflik. Recruiters are paid the full amount of the fee by Reflik after the candidate is hired.
Reflik gives you access to hundreds of jobs, most of which are available only to “preferred” vendors. Instead of spending time cold calling, negotiating contracts, getting on vendor lists, and collecting fees, you can spend your time recruiting more candidates by working with Reflik.
Reflik offers clients (employers) a 60-day guarantee period. This means that recruiters are paid by Reflik 60 days after their candidates’ start date. You can choose to receive a check via mail or we can directly deposit your placement fee electronically in an account of your choice after the guarantee period.

If you are a registered company, we need you to provide to us:
  • The name of the legal entity to be paid.
  • The applicable EIN or Social Security number and W-9 form.
If you are an independent recruiter and do not belong to a registered company, we will need you to:
  • Complete a W-9 and send it to Reflik. We will issue you an IRS Form 1099 at the end of the year.
Large enterprises who are on the Fortune 500 list are hiring new employees using our platform. These large enterprises operate in variety of industry from technology to manufacturing, and financial serveries to retail goods and service.

Hundreds of medium-sized enterprises and small business hire using our platform, as well.
Reflik has jobs requisitions for roles across functions and industries, including: in information technology, management consulting, business development and sales, accounting and finance, management, and more. These jobs are “direct hire.” Temporary and contract positions are currently unavailable on the Reflik platform.

We value your privacy and your candidate database. Your candidate profiles are not searchable. Other than the employer to whom you submit a profile, your candidates’ profiles are completely 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 database is private, so are other users’ candidate databases. Reflik does not offer a resume-search database, not even to our clients. We are a full-service, crowd-enabled recruitment service.
Employers want to see candidates that they don’t already have in their database. Candidates who directly applied to a job posted by a client (employer) outside of the Reflik’s portal in the preceding 180 days “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 placement fee.
If you are the first recruiter to submit a candidate for a job, the candidate “belongs” to you for that particular client (employer) for a period of 180 days (or approximately 6 months). If the employer hires your candidate within that time frame, you earn the placement fee.

Our system prevents a candidate from being submitted twice to the same employer. In the unlikely event that duplicates do occur, the candidate ownership credit will be given to the recruiter who first submitted the candidate based on a time stamp in our system. Reflik’s Account Managers will handle such cases.
You will still get paid. Reflik’s agreement with clients (employers) ensures that you will get paid if the client (employer) hires your candidate for another role.
We typically provide a 60 days replacement guarantee to clients (employers). The guarantee period may vary for certain employers. In some rare cases, the guarantee period is 90 days.

If our client believes an employee found on Reflik is not the best fit 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. We would ask you to find a replacement.

Payment is subject to the candidate completing the guarantee period. If a candidate leaves before the guarantee period is over and a replacement candidate has not been identified, neither you nor Reflik will receive the placement fee.
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. This policy ensures Reflik’s good service to the employers.

Reflik provides visibility in the recruiting process that protects our customers and recruiters 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.
You can continue to work with your client directly. Reflik’s Terms of Use prohibits recruiters from developing new business through Reflik and parties attempting to violate this policy will be immediately removed from the portal and will be subject to legal recourse.
Once you decide what job(s) you want to work on, you can begin submitting candidates using the “applying on behalf of candidate” feature of the Reflik platform.

Step 1: Click the “apply on behalf of candidate” button, located next to each job in the Jobs section of the Reflik platform. This will open up the application pane.

Step 2: Fill out the candidate’s information: First Name, Last Name, Email Address are required. You may enter the candidate’s phone number – this is optional. Attach the candidate’s resume. You may either attach a cover letter or fill out an executive summary. But you will be required to do one or the other. Answer the pre-screening questions set up by clients (employers) for a specific job. After you’ve finished filling out the application, click “Apply to this job.”

Step 3: When you have finished applying on behalf of the candidate, the candidate will receive a “right to represent” email. This email will give the candidate an opportunity to accept the application. We recommend speaking with the candidate beforehand, so they accept your application quickly.

Once candidates hit the “I am interested” button in the “right to represent” email, they will be taken to the Reflik website. Here, they can accept the application either by signing in with their LinkedIn account or by entering their information manually.

You can find the status of your candidate in the “Track candidates” page on the Reflik platform.
You “own” your candidates for 180 days (or approximately 6 months) for a specific job. So, if you submit a candidate to one of our clients and that client hires your candidate within the next 180 days, you will be eligible for a referral reward.
