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. DraftHire should be used as an additional sourcing channel to find qualified candidates. Unlike other platforms, there is no cost to join DraftHire, and you only incur the referral fee upon a successful hire.
With DraftHire, 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 DraftHire are a fraction of what you would pay to a typical headhunter. DraftHire saves you time and money, and saves you the hassle of negotiating contract and fees with recruiters. Using DraftHire 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 DraftHire makes them more money. DraftHire 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.

Employers from a wide range of industries and sizes use DraftHire. Whether you’re looking to fill one position or hundreds, DraftHire is here for you.
Individuals and recruiters “own” the candidates they submit for a period of six months (180 days) from the date of submission. If referred a candidate is hired for a different position, other than that which the referral was initially made, you are still required to pay a referral fee based on the respected salary.
The employer owes a referral reward only if a referred candidate is hired within 180 days from the date of introduction via DraftHire.
In the event that you received a candidate via DraftHire that was already in your company database in the preceding 90 days from date of submission via DraftHire, you will have the option to reject the candidate with the reason of a “duplicate submission”. Please review the Terms of Service 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 Service to learn more.
