How Many Direct Placements Do Members Make?

Okay, so we asked members how many Network placements they made last year. And also how much they’d like to increase their Network billings this year. But what about the number of direct hire placements Network members made overall in 2018?

Intrigued? Good! Because have the answer to that question in the form of our Members’ Area poll. And below is the question that we recently posed with that poll:

How many direct hire placements did you make in 2018?

The choice of answers that we provided is listed below, along with the percentage of split network recruiters that selected each one:

  • None — 1.0%
  • 1-10 — 47.1%
  • 11-20 — 27.9%
  • 21-30 — 16.3%
  • More than 30 — 7.7%

Direct hire is on fire!

As has been the case in the past, two answers dominated the results of this poll. They were “1-10” (47.1%) and “11-20” (27.9%). That means 75% of poll participants made between one and 20 direct hire placements in 2018.

Here’s more good news: just 1% of members indicated they made zero direct hire placements.

And here’s even more good news. A healthy percentage of recruiters (16.3%) made between 21 and 30 direct hire placements last year. But wait, it doesn’t stop there! That’s because 7.7% of members indicated they made more than 30 such placements in 2018.

But the results of this poll underscore what we already know: Top Echelon Network recruiters are successful. They’re veterans of the profession. Many run their own agency. They’ve “been there and done that.” (Wherever there is and whatever that is.)

It’s no secret that we’re in a candidates’ market right now. In other words, direct hire is on fire! And as long as it, so will the recruiting desks of Top Echelon Network members.
