The Science Referral Network allows its clients to set their "referral fee" at whatever level they are comfortable. This fee is then only paid if the right candidate is first identified through the Science Referral Network and only after that candidate has started working for our client. The Science Referral Network provides value throughout your hiring process for any candidates that we identify (scheduling interviews, reference checks, negotiation, etc.) and we don't charge anything except for the referral fee that you set if our efforts result in a successful hire. We then distribute this referral fee to all our network members who helped in filling your position. This contingency business model makes the Science Referral Network a risk free resource for companies interested in exploring how a crowdsourcing referral program can help with their hiring needs.
