2 Steps to Manage Your People Dashboard in TE

Welcome to the first post in our new blog series titled “Network Hacks.” We call them “hacks” not because of a security risk or anything like that, but because these are tips and tricks that will help you to experience more success as a Member of Top Echelon’s recruiting network.

The first blog post in our series deals with the People Dashboard.

The People Dashboard is a powerful tool, and all you need to do to harness and leverage its power is to understand how to integrate it into your workflow and make it a profit generator for your desk.

Having the People Dashboard open at all times, much like your email, will allow you to recognize the value that Top Echelon’s tools provide for you.

If you have not been diligent and kept up with the Candidate Inbox or Requests Received tools on Your Dashboard, there will be some preliminary clean-up work. This is similar to the work you would have to do in your email inbox if you were about to step away for a vacation.

However, once you have tidied things up, you should have a fantastic workspace that will yield split placements.

Below is a short video detailing how to manage your People Dashboard in two easy steps:

However, if you don’t prefer to watch videos (or if you prefer to watch videos AND read), below are some written instructions:

Step 1:

  • The first place to dig into is the Candidate Inbox. What has come in from all of your advertising efforts through Top Echelon?
    • Your Job Board
    • Job Posting Tool
    • Your internal submissions by your team
    • TEN Shares which are directly sent to you from TE split recruiting partners
    • TEN Jobs Feed: from marketing, recruiting, and advertising efforts from TE partners/ websites
  • It only takes seconds to screen and qualify/disqualify/delete any submission in the Candidate Inbox.
    • Preview the candidate. Decide to do one of the following three things:
      1. Thumbs Up—They move to the qualifying stages in the pipeline for the job they were submitted
      2. Thumbs Down—They are disqualified for that job, but saved to Big Biller and the Pipeline Source for that candidate is tracked, so you can easily see where you are receiving candidates.
      3. Trash Can—They are deleted from your Big Biller and the pipeline.  However, they are still retrievable from the Deleted Records section for 30 days in Settings, in case you change your mind.
      4. Whichever action you choose, your TE partner will receive a notification so they are aware of what happened in regards to their recruiting efforts with you.

Step 2:

  • Requests Received
    • This is where other Top Echelon Network partners are running searches through the powerful Network Candidates tool and finding the candidates you have which are collecting dust. The Network Candidates tool allows other Members to run searches on resume keywords, skills, position titles to discover you as a trading partner who has candidates for their roles. This is a money-making tool with three easy steps for you to share the candidates requested:
      1. Preview the candidate.
      2. Preview the job.
      3. Decide.
        • Accept request to share.
        • Decline request to share.

If you want to learn more about the Network Candidates Tool and how it operates, access the Help Center and search “Candidate Inbox.

The Candidate Outbox is exactly what it sounds like. This tool contains:

  • Candidates from your TEN Jobs Feed who have applied for your trading partners’ jobs
  • Your candidates that you’ve shared directly with your partners
  • Candidates sent as a result of Network Requests

The Requests Sent shows you which candidates your partners have requested that you share and that you’ve shared with them.

Now that you’re aware of how easy these tools are, you can implement more easily into your daily activity. And once you do that, it will only be a matter of time before you see a return on your investment of time, energy, and effort.
