Welcome to Draftboard Future Successful Scout!

If you're looking for a way to earn rewards while helping others find their dream jobs, our Scout program is just what you need. Becoming a Scout is easy and rewarding, and we're here to guide you every step of the way.

To become a Scout, you only need the willingness to help others and a desire to earn referral payouts. Being a Scout is free and Scouts can participate from anywhere in the world. Whether you're a seasoned professional, a super-connector, built an online community, or want to build a second income, there's a place for you in our Scout community.

Signing up on Draftboard's platform is a breeze. With just a few clicks, you're ready to start sharing job openings. Once you're in, familiarize yourself with our platform. Be sure to check out all the jobs on the ‘Explore’ tab, and play around with all the filters until you find the jobs that are relevant for your audience. Now once you narrow down a job, you’ll see our simple referral process is done by just creating a link. 

If you’re interested in having many jobs at once (as opposed to individual links), this can be done by adding all your interested jobs to your ‘Watchlist’. With the ‘Watchlist’ feature, you only need to share one link and all the jobs you’ve selected will appear. There’s no right or wrong way to do it, it’s purely a Scout’s preference on how they prefer to tackle leveraging their networks. 

Draftboard makes it easy to track your referral's progress and earnings, so you can see the impact you're making in real time. Once candidates apply to the positions you referred them to, they’ll appear under “Tracking” where you’ll be able to see all your candidates.

Success as a Scout is all about building and nurturing your network. Keep an eye out for potential candidates and job opportunities, and don't be shy about leveraging social media and attending networking events. The more you engage with your network, the more opportunities you'll uncover. Remember, every referral you make not only helps someone in your network find a great job but also earns you rewards in the process.

Meet Hilla, one of our successful Scouts. Hilla was able to monetize her existing network by sharing job opportunities through Draftboard. By allowing anyone to earn referrals, Hilla not only helped her network find great jobs but also earned rewards along the way. Hilla’s story is just one example of the countless success stories within our Scout community.

Draftboard has many types of Scouts, one of them being what we call a community scout. A community scout at Drafboard is defined by those who have a large presence online, whether that be a personal brand, a newsletter, a blog, or active on social media. Our community scouts tend to see significant action early on from their followers and have built off of that traction.

A tip for future community scouts: Placement of job links is everything. Our scouts continue to test everything, but one thing they’ve determined, placing Draftboard job links at the bottom of an email/newsletter/blog without any mention earlier on, performs the worst.
