5 Traits of a Great Split Recruiting Partner

There are many keys to making split placements in Top Echelon Network, but one of the most important is working with a great split recruiting partner.

That’s because a great partner is just that—a partner with you throughout the entire process. You and your partner pool your resources and “tag team” the search, relying on each other’s strengths to bring the recruitment process to a satisfying conclusion.

We see examples of this in action all of the time. In fact, there are probably examples in this very issue of The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog.

Below are five traits of a great split recruiting partner:

#1—Candidate assessment

They know which candidates are a fit for their partner’s open positions and which ones are not. Because of this, they do not waste anybody’s time. (Least of all their own.)


They don’t just send their candidates and wait for their partner to make the placement. They offer their help, and then they provide whatever assistance is needed.


It’s almost impossible to be a good recruiter without being persistent. So it’s almost impossible to be a great split recruiting partner without also being persistent.


Great split partners are on top of things. They don’t let time lapse and they don’t let things “fall through the cracks.”

And when another TE recruiter leaves a voice message or sends an email, they respond to them in a timely fashion! (Because nobody likes to be ignored.)

#5—Attention to detail

“The devil is in the details,” as we all know. It only takes one miscommunication or misplaced piece of information to derail a potential placement.

The placement process can be bumpy enough. Don’t make it bumpier by ignoring or forgetting facts and/or details.
