6 Reasons to Use the MEGA Search Tool More

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: more Top Echelon Network members are making split placements with the MEGA Database search tool.

There are more than four million recruited candidates in the MEGA. In case you’re not aware, the MEGA search tool allows Network members who use the Big Biller recruiting software to share data more quickly and easily.

However, please note that if you’re a Network member and you do NOT use Big Biller, you can still use the MEGA. While you can perform searches in the MEGA search tool, your information will not be included in MEGA searches conducted by other Network members. And as I just mentioned, the reason is because you’re not using Big Biller.

The MEGA search tool rules!

With all of this in mind, we have six reasons why you should use the MEGA search tool more often. Those reasons are as follows:

#1—Filling tough-to-fill job orders

Let’s face it: high-quality candidates are in demand, but high-quality candidates are exactly what your clients want. The MEGA is the place for sourcing candidates when you can’t find them anywhere else.

#2—Filling job orders more quickly

It’s not just about filling the job order with the best candidate, but it’s also about filling the job order with the best candidate more quickly. Your clients will be impressed, and you might see more placement checks.

#3—Finding a candidate from a specific geographic region

Sometimes, it’s not just that high-quality candidates are difficult to find. You have to find them in a specific place, too. The MEGA search tool can help with this, as well.

#4—Filling job orders you can’t get to because you’re so busy

What’s the point of having a bunch of job orders if you don’t have the time to fill them all? No point, that’s what! The MEGA helps leverage your resources to make more placements and increase your billings.

#5—Expanding into a new niche

Accept job orders outside of your niche by partnering with other recruiters and using their candidates. Now you’re really making placements you would not have made otherwise!

#6—Increasing your revenue

More candidates can lead to more placements, which can lead to more recruiting fees, which means more revenue. And really, isn’t that what this whole crazy profession is all about?

And just for fun, I’m going to add a seventh reason. That reason is the fact that the MEGA search tool will soon be the only way that Network members will be able to share candidates. (Outside of emailing them directly to your split recruiting partners, which you’ll still be able to do. And yes, there’s the Discussion Forum, as well.)

In the meantime, let’s put a nice bow on our discussion of the MEGA Database search tool:

  • If you have Big Biller, then you can conduct searches in the MEGA and your information will be included in searches conducted by other Top Echelon Network members.
  • If you do NOT use Big Biller, then you can still conduct searches in the MEGA, but your information will not be included in searches conducted by other Network members.

Below are three other important facts about the MEGA Database search tool:

  1. Resumes are blinded! That means nobody can see your candidates and/or take them and run.
  2. There is NO additional charge to use the MEGA. It is included with your split network membership.
  3. It’s easy to opt-in to the MEGA. Navigate to “Settings,” then go to “Top Echelon Network Settings,” and then click “Opt-In to the MEGA Database.”

If you have any questions about the MEGA or the future of candidates in Top Echelon’s recruiting network, I encourage you to contact Drea. You can do so by calling 330.455.1433, x156 or by sending an email to drea@topechelon.com.
