Validation period

Alumni are responsible for submitting a referral as outlined by the Alumni Referral Program. The candidate profiles are automatically updated and will remain in the national candidate database for 365 days from the date of receipt. The candidate profile will be affiliated with the applicable requisition for immediate access and will be reviewed by the requisition owner and/or delegates for a specific position. The candidate will be able to apply for additional positions on and the referral will still be attached to that candidate for the 365 day eligibility period. After 365 days the referral will expire, but the Alumnus can go back in and refer the candidate again to refresh the eligibility period for another 365 days.


Awards will be paid out for referrals that are a successful hire for a position located within the United States and complete a 30-day period. You will be notified after the 30-day period if you are applicable for this reward. All referrals must be submitted via the Alumni Referral Portal in order for the referral to be valid. If we hire their candidate, we'll award $500 –$7,000 depending on the level of the position. Any award payment is subject to applicable taxes. See below for instructions on how to refer a candidate.
