Research has shown that employees who come into organizations through referrals are excellent contributors, stay longer and create a better work environment. If you know someone who you think would be a great addition to the corporation, and they meet the qualifications for an existing open full-time position, encourage them to apply and you could receive a $1,000 bonus if they are hired and stay in the position for at least six months.
This program is currently only open for positions in Campus Dining and Human Resources.
