“My Best Candidate Supplier Since We Met in 1996”

What’s the primary goal of membership in Top Echelon Network?  Making more placements!

How do you accomplish that?  By forming relationships with other recruiters!

And when you form relationships and continue to nurture them, something great happens: you make multiple placements over a long period of time.

That’s exactly the case with a pair of recruiters in this week’s issue of The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog.  They met nearly 20 years ago, and they’ve been working together ever since.

Based on the comments listed below, here are just a few of the characteristics of their trading partner relationship:

  • Mutual respect for each other as recruiters
  • Accountability for completing their respective duties during the placement process
  • The similarity of their working styles and approaches to the search profession
  • Enjoyment of each other’s friendship

These are characteristics of just about every long-term trading partner relationship in Top Echelon Network.  The recruiters involved like working with each other and they trust one another.

The result is a positive experience, especially in the form of multiple split placements.

You, too, can enjoy a relationship like this in Top Echelon Network.  To find out how and for more information, contact Director of Network Operations Drea Codispoti, CPC/CERS at 330.455.1433, x156 or via email at drea@topechelon.com.

Congratulations to everybody who made placements this week!
