Referral questions enable your organization to capture structured data for referrals made by your existing employees. By default, Greenhouse Recruiting provides the following referral specific questions/fields:

  • Relationship
  • Work History
  • Rating
  • When we reach out (identified or anonymous referral)
  • They know they're being referred 
  • Referral Notes

Additionally, your organization can create custom referral questions to capture other data during the referral process. In this article, we will cover how to add a new custom referral question.

Click the Configure icon configure.png in the upper right-hand corner and select Custom Options from the left-hand panel.
