Referral Resource Center
Career Step provides career-training that changes lives for the better, and you can be a part of it. We’ve set up a Referral Program so you can help people you know start new careers they’ll love—and get rewarded for it at the same time.
First, if you don’t already have a referral account, you can sign up for the program here. (If you forgot your referral information, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can look it up for you.)
Next, let all your friends, family, and acquaintances know about Career Step and what we have to offer. Have them visit your referral webpage so they’ll be tagged in our system with your unique Referrer ID. Or they can call us at 1-800-411-7073 and tell us you referred them.
Finally, if they sign up, you get paid. It’s that easy. We send out electronic payments once a month in the month following the signup. For example, if you have any referrals sign up in June, you’ll get paid around July 20. And the way it’s structured, the higher the number of referrals you have sign up in a given month, the higher your bonus for each referral.
- $100 per signup for 1-2 signups a month
- $200 per signup for 3-4 signup a month
- $250 per signup for 5+ signup a month
It really is that simple! Watch our Referral Program video and then check out some of our resources below so you can help your friends find a new career and start earning referral bonuses.
Career Step has developed a full range of resources to help you tell your contacts about the quality training programs we offer.
- Referral blog with articles written specifically to help you find referrals
- Facebook page and group so you can connect with other referrers to exchange ideas about what works
- Variety of materials available below to download, including PDF versions of the brochures, a syllabus for each of the Career Step training programs, and banners that you can use on your personal blog or website
These resources are all designed to help you make the most of your participation in the Career Step Referral program. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, or have questions, send us an email, email@example.com.
Referral Web Page
As a part of the Referral Program you are given access to your own unique webpage that includes a general description of each of the programs and allows contacts to request more information. Find your page at referral.careerstep.com/ref##### (your 5-digit Referrer ID).
Referral Business Card Template
One of the easiest ways to increase your referrals is to give people a business card with your referral information on it. You can create your own or use this template to create and print your own Career Step referrer business cards.
Learner and Employer Reviews
The best way to increase your referrals is to share your own success story. But we also have a reviews page that makes it easy for your contacts to see what employers and learners have to say about Career Step training. You can also find more in-depth personal stories in our Success Library.
We have a number of videos that can provide your contacts the opportunity to meet the Career Step trainers, hear from learners on their experiences, take a guided tour of a training program, and more.
Find all the Career Step videos at http://www.careerstep.com/media-library
Hint: These same videos can be found on the media tab of your personal referral webpage. If you share the videos from that site, they will automatically be tagged with your referrer ID.
Wondering how many of your friends have contacted or signed up with us? You can create a Referral Dashboard account at referral.careerstep.com/dashboard using your Referrer ID and the email address that is associated with your Referrer account. With it you will be able to view how many people have requested information from Career Step (referred leads) and see the individuals who have signed up in one of our programs (referred signups).
Spread the word about Career Step in your community! We’ve developed fliers for you that can be customized with your referral information. Use these on community boards in libraries, grocery stores, and other local gathering places.
