Fwd is a simple social hiring tool that helps you in discovering hidden jobs and candidates from your friends and their friends.
Let's say you have 100 friends and they in turn have another 100. That's a total of 10,000 connections in your 2nd level network alone. And yet due to various reasons more often you are not aware of the jobs available in your own network. Fwd basically solves this problem. With Fwd, if a job gets created by your friend, groups or their friends, you'll be auto notified via alerts. Jobs are also discoverable through real time search.
Connections are your friends who also have installed Fwd. Fwd reads your contact book to figure out who all are on Fwd and also have you as their contact. Fwd automatically makes you a connection with these contacts. And if only one side has the contact then the other side will get an auto-invite to accept other as a connection.
You can also connect to people by visiting their profile and sending a connection request.
