Referral Programs

Our goal is to make your relationship with us pay off for you, literally. Since I started selling information technology related services in 1994, I am blessed with many great relationships. As I founded Provident Link, Ltd. in 2006, I realized I have a great problem on my hands: The longer I serve people, the more difficult it is to get time-sensitive information to those who can benefit.

Therefore, we leverage a confidential e-mail newsletter to alert you to client needs and quality candidates. Our reputation, and an above-average incentive for your time, has compelled many to refer us, either confidentially or directly, to new clients or to people with good skills. Note that referrals do not need to be “looking.” All we need is a name and a method of contact and we’ll do the rest.

Provident Link will pay you $1,000 for any referral that generates a successful placement. Based on Program success, beginning in 2008 we intend to raffle prizes of significant value at an annual thank you dinner, so be sure to read our newsletter!
