How to Respond to a Recruiter's Referral Request

At Teamable, we know the best way to get in contact with a candidate is by asking someone who knows them to make a warm introduction.

Once a recruiter identifies someone in your network that they think might be a match for a role, they will send you a request to make the intro.

You will receive an email like this:

For each prospect, there are four potential actions, depending on which link you click:

  • I'm happy to recommend [candidate] and make a quick, customized intro.
  • I'm happy to recommend [candidate], but delegate reaching out to the recruiter.
  • I don't know the [candidate].
  • [Candidate] is not a good fit for this role.


When you click on one of the links above, it will take you to the suggested prospect to confirm the intended action.

Make a quick, customized intro. Make any changes you'd like to the subject, body, cc or bcc fields and click 'Send' to send the email from your company email address
