Candidates, Communication, and Collaboration in TE

How can you be more successful in Top Echelon’s recruiting network? By learning from those who have already enjoyed success, that’s how! And by virtue of the three split placements highlighted below, we can see that candidates, communication, and collaboration hold the keys to success.


It all starts with great candidates. If you don’t have great candidates, then you don’t have placements. The TE members involved in these placements presented stellar candidates to their split recruiting partners. Those partners, in turn, presented the candidates to their clients and then magic happened.


Effective communication during the hiring process accelerates that process. Things happen more quickly. As we know, “time kills all deals.” That’s why speed is vitally important, regardless of whether it’s a split situation or not. The more Network recruiters communicate with one another, the faster information is conveyed and decisions can be made.


This goes a step beyond communication. This is more than just talking. It’s taking action. It’s an investment of time and energy on the part of the recruiters involved. That investment represents both collaboration and a commitment on their part to the process and to their trading partner. Not only that, but their action also accelerates the process. So that’s like a bonus wrapped in a bonus wrapped in a tortilla and then deep fried. (Or something like that.)

Does that make you hungry, both for an enchilada and also for more success in Top Echelon’s recruiter network? Well, it should!

The bad news: we can’t help you with the enchilada. You’re on your own there. The good news: we CAN help with more success in our Network.

Jason Kaminsky

“The team at DTR took the time to learn about bizjobz and my client. They presented a fabulous candidate only after understanding the client’s requirements. This was a 10-month process which got delayed due to the candidate taking another offer, then dealing with immigration and non-compete issues. Finally, the candidate is free to start. This was a total team effort.”
