4 Things That Lead to More Network Placements

At Top Echelon, we’re always looking for ways to help the Network’s recruiters make more placements. The good news for us is that those recruiters are the ones who show us HOW they make more placements!

We published our “‘Comments’ and Compliments” feature for years in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog, namely because it was so popular.

Network recruiters love to be recognized for making placements. They also love to recognize their split recruiting partners for a job well done.

However, there was a dual benefit to this newsletter feature. When recruiters submit these comments and compliments, they also provide a blueprint for how to be successful in TE.

So not only have we been publishing this feature, but we’ve also been compiling these best practices. Ultimately, they serve as an excellent blueprint for all Network members.

Based on countless placements over the years, below are four things that absolutely lead to more placements in Top Echelon’s recruiting network:


This refers to the accuracy of the candidates supplied by the candidate recruiter to the job order recruiter based upon the job description. The more accurate the candidates, the more likely that one of them will be a fit for the position.

Therein lies the true value of a split network. It’s the ability to source candidates that you aren’t able to source through other means.


This refers to how quickly the candidate recruiter is able to provide help during the hiring process. So it’s not just about the quality of the candidates. It’s also about how quickly you can get access to those candidates.

A great candidate doesn’t do much good if you present them to a hiring manager after the position has already been filled. As everybody knows, “Time kills all deals.”


This refers to the “give-and-take” of a solid trading partner relationship in Top Echelon Network. In such a relationship, the recruiters not only like working with each other, but they also work well together.

One of the overlooked aspects of split placements is that recruiters can “tag-team” a placement. This means they share the duties and responsibilities, making the process easier for both parties.


While this might be a foregone conclusion for some recruiters, it should not be overlooked. Striking a professional chord is integral to navigating the ups and downs of the placement process and arriving at a successful conclusion.

When you conduct business in a thoroughly professional manner, you overcome challenges and more easily eliminate obstacles to placement success.
