Learning Ladders: Why should I add my online contacts to Ladders?


Bringing your online contacts into the Ladders space is all about career focus.

First of all, we’re now living in the referrals era, with 88% of employers* saying referrals are the #1 source for great applicants. As a result, Ladders is making it super simple to refer friends and colleagues.

First of all, we want you to collate all your online contacts into a single, opportunity-optimized space.

So we can give you access to our automated referral program, designed to:

  • Target openings in your company and match them with your contacts.
  • Send our referral recommendations to your inbox.
  • Allow you to make a legitimate referral in a couple of clicks.
  • Open you up to recommendations by others for high-level openings.
  • Help you achieve up to $10,000** in earnings for a successful referral.

And that’s beside our usual activities, which also involve:

  • Creating a more rarified setting for high-end companies and their recruiters to target.
  • Using the tailored information you’ve provided to target high-end openings for you.
  • Delivering critical opportunities and updates directly to your own inbox.

Because great opportunities can come and go fast. He who hesitates… and all that, right?

Still, seems like optimizing by organizing is always great in theory, but who has the time?

And so to the good news. This is super simple.

Let’s quickly check it out.
