1. How do I register?

Registering couldn't be easier. Look for the register tab on top right of any page. Enter your name, email and a password, and your registration will be activated.

To really get the most out of your Yolpme account, we recommend doing the following when you register:

  • Add your social networks. Select the social networks you want to link to your Yolpme account.
  • Provide your PayPal account details so you can get paid. Don't have an account? Get one here: PayPal.com
  • Keep informed. Register to receive alerts via Twitter or email and set your sharing preferences.

2. How do I add my social networks to my Yolpme account?

When you register, you'll be given the option of adding your social networks. What this allows you to do is

  • Send one-click referrals.
  • Select only the connections you want to send referrals to. You can refer Yolpme jobs directly to your contacts on social networks.

3. Can I be informed about new jobs as they're posted?

Yes. There are a number of ways to keep up-to-date:

  • Via email alerts. Choose from daily, weekly or fortnightly alerts, and filter by category, location and referral fee, and Yolpme will send emails to your email address.
  • Via Twitter direct message. Choose from daily, weekly or fortnightly alerts, and filter by category, location and referral fee, and Yolpme will send emails to your Twitter account.
  • Like Yolpme on Facebook.Get live updates about new roles, companies, product updates and industry news via Facebook.
  • Follow Yolpme on Twitter .Get live updates about new roles, companies, product updates and industry news via Twitter@Yoplme

4. I don't belong to any social networks; can I still use Yolpme?

Yes. You can still refer jobs posted on Yolpme via email or even apply for jobs yourself and gain the sign-on bonus.

5. How do you track the job referrals I send?

Yolpme sets a unique URL for each referral that you send, so if anybody clicks on that link and is successfully placed in that job, you get the referral fee. Note that if two people send the same job to the same person who applies to both links, then the first application to be received will be paid.

6. A person I referred was successful; how long until I get paid?

The referrer gets paid once the candidate has been employed in the advertised position for 14 days. Yolpme deposits the full cash reward advertised on the website directly into your PayPal account once it receives the money from the employer. PayPal will inform you via email when the money is sent to your account.

7. How do I increase my chances of making money?

There are two ways you can increase your chances of earning Yolpme cash rewards:

  • Stay informed. The first person to refer a position advertised on Yolpme to a job candidate is credited with the referral. So if you and a friend send the same person a job referral, the first one that was clicked and applied for keeps the referral fee. See "Choose your recruiting style" for more tips on how to stay informed.
  • If you know the right person for the role, then send them a direct message –that way, they're more likely to read your message and apply for the role.

8. How many jobs can I send to my contacts?

There is no limit to the number of jobs you can send to your contacts. However, Yolpme recommends carefully considering who you think will be right for the role and targeting them.

9. How do I know if someone I have referred has been successful?

Yolpme will send an email to your registered email address and Yolpme message centre to let you know when one of your referrals has been placed in a job.

10. Will Yolpme forward jobs to everyone in my network?

This depends on your Yolpme account settings. You can:

  • Post jobs advertised on Yolpme to your wall or newsfeed. This will send a broadcast message available to all of your friends and colleagues.
  • Message or post jobs advertised on Yolpme to your contacts. This will send a direct message to the people you select. Simply type their name into the search box and select who you wish to send the referral to.

11. Can I be selective about who I send jobs to?

Yes. You can message or post jobs advertised on Yolpme to one or a number of contacts. Simply type their name into the search box and select who you wish to send the referral to.
