Require notes on referral candidate
I often see team members seeking preferential treatment for the candidates they refer. However, it may not always be the case the team member knows what the open role requirements are, what the strategy for the role is, what the duties of the role entail, or if the experience of their referral match up with the open role so it may not always be appropriate to move the referral forward to the next phase. With the large volume of applications that come in and large number of openings at any given time, it is not efficient to screen referrals for positions they are not otherwise qualified for simply because they were referred by a current team member. Therefore the "Referral Notes" section in Greenhouse should be a mandatory field. Each referring team member should include details as to why they are referring the candidate and why they believe them to be qualified for the position they are referring them for.
