  • Now Available: Employee Referral Program

    Illinois Human Resources is excited to announce a new staff Employee Referral Program. Watch the video to learn more about how you can launch your own employee referral incentive adventure. An audio descriptive version of this video is available.

    You can now refer potential applicants to any posted position using the internal job board. When you access the job board you’ll now see a new category, “Eligible for Referral”, accessed via Current Employees button on When you click on any job title you will be able to send an email link with the job posting and an application link to your referral to encourage them to apply for the position.

    For some hard-to-fill and high-demand vacant positions that have been approved by university leadership, you will see a “$” next to “Referable.” For these positions, if your referral (for a new to the University candidate) applies for the position using the link you emailed them, and is selected for the position, the hiring unit will pay you $600 for the referral (subject to eligibility criteria).
