      • Show Everyone: The Show Everyone option will show all company employees.
      • Recommended: The Recommended option will provide employees whose current titles are similar to the position you are trying to fill, as they are likely to have friends in positions similar to their own.
      • Nearby: The Nearby option will provide employees whose location is nearby the location of the position you are trying to fill.
