The Duma Works platform offers some great tools to help job seekers use their professional and personal networks to connect to job opportunities.

Here is a checklist of things to make sure you complete on your Duma Works profile to maximize your network of job opportunities

1-    Add your past employers/mentors to your Duma Works network

Before you do this, it is important to first call your past employers/mentors to explain what Duma Works is and how it works. Anyone you add on your Duma Works referral network will receive a confirmation SMS, and will want to know that Duma Works is real. We find it is easiest to convince people to sign up if we explain how Duma Works is a social job network to help job seekers stand out and help match employers to the best candidates. We also tell people that Duma Works has been recognized by Google, Rockefeller, Intel, and the Equity Foundation as an empowerment tool for youth, and matched over 3,500 job seekers with job opportunities in 2013.

2-    Invite your past employers/mentors/colleagues to give you a recommendation on Duma Works

This recommendation will give your profile more credibility and increase your ranking in the job matching software so you will be matched to more job opportunities. It is important to make sure you only request recommendations from people who you have worked with in the past, as fake or uninformative recommendations can negatively affect your job eligibility.

3-    Add your colleagues/friends/family members to your Duma Works network

Duma Works functions like word of mouth. When an employer has a job, he/she asks friends, family, and colleagues who they would recommend. Then, those people recommend others. It looks something like this [graphic]. If you add people you can trust to your network, you will be more likely to be socially connected to a job opportunity, and have a higher chance of being notified.

Like with employer/mentors, you should probably tell your friends and colleagues what Duma Works is before you add them.

4-    Refer your friends/family to jobs!

Duma Works provides a really cool opportunity for you to help the people around you connect to jobs. If you ever receive an SMS or email from Duma Works asking you if you know anyone to refer to a certain job, take that opportunity! Not only are you helping those around you, but you also earn points through successful referrals.

You can build your referral network by creating a profile here on Duma Works, and then visiting the contacts page. You can also add a person by sending an SMS to +254 701 060 302 with the word ADD + THEIR NAME + THEIR PHONE NUMBER
