It’s as Good a Time as any for Another Employee Referral Tool

You pay a fee not for posting, but rather when there’s a hire.

Reflik has nine employees, including salespeople, developers, and more marketing and advertising folks to come. Right now, the co-founders are the investors. Eduard Tilihoi, who I talked to today, says they’ll seek venture capital money soon.
