How can you make money on referals

I have a good reputation and I am always getting people looking for skills that I have , how can I make money referring people ,what is the best way t do this, do I look at a job description and then make sure I get a $500 referal and then search resumes on craigs list for some one to fill the spot, $500 is not worth my time in most cases , is there a legal documentation that I need to have to get a % of the hires salary for finding him a job? I am new to this can I get the contactor to sign a paper that I get 5$ for every hour he works >? I just want to get the most money I can for referring people

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What a deal!

Yeah, you are going to make $500 referring someone from Craigslist to someone with a job offering.

Besides, $500 is not worth your precious time. What an awesome deal!  

Just remember some folks only make 500 a week, some a month...

well what I am saying is I endure countless phone calls and like 6-20 hours for my time and all that crap for $500 , i just want to make more for my effort and want to see how you think I can
Just don't expect to get $500 up front. or even $5.
Become a CompTIA Certified Healthcare IT Tech

Think about this in another are referring people that have no job or have a job they would like to leave.  I am not sure what your day job is but I would be willing to bet you have a customer for life for helping him/her into their new position as long as you have a product that they can benefit.  Otherwise, I know enough people in the placement business and it is not quite as easy as it sounds and even more difficult to get paid.

but get paid for referals if you can , get the agreement in writing of a least email
