Do you ever pay/get paid referral bonuses from outside your org?

I'm thinking about offering anyone in my network- not just employees- a bonus for referring a successfully hired candidate. I'm curious if you've ever seen this. For example, have you ever seen a referral bonus posted for anyone to claim if they refer the successful hire? Have you ever hired someone from a referral who isn't currenlty working for you and paid them? Would love any advice!

I’ve been offered a referral bonus after I turned down a job offer (contingent on me referring somebody that they end up hiring and retaining for at least 60 days). I thought that was a clever idea, I might need to copy that one day 🙂.I’ve also seen referral bonuses offered to the general public on Twitter before. Here’s one example:
Thanks so much!
