Referral for internship pays off as well to the one who made it?

Someone asked on Oct 05, 2018 - 3 answers

If someone who is working for a consulting firm makes a referral to someone and this someone gets the internship, does the one who refferred him/her get a financial incentive anyway because he/she passed the selection process or will that someone wait until (and if) the candidate gets a full time job offer?

Hi,
Referrals are typically paid once the candidate has joined the company on full time contract and has validated his trial period. So in case of internship, this can be a long time from the initial entry date.

It will depend on the company, but I'd say typically no bonus paid until candidate joins as full time employee. Best is obviously to ask your HR.

Normally only if you join full time - but why does this matter?
