New Year, Same Quick Tips for Network Success

Over the course of 2023 I presented some quick tips for more success in Top Echelon Network. And sadly, another year has passed us by . . .

But I still have some quick tips for achieving more success in our split fee recruiting network!

As I’ve stated before, success in the Network results from a combination of proficiency with both human interaction and technology, including Top Echelon’s recruiting database of candidates and job orders.

(For specific questions about Top Echelon software and/or technology, the Help Center is available 24/7 to answer your questions and provide assistance.)

With all of this in mind, here are more quick tips for Top Echelon Network success!

Tip #1: THIS is When to Break Communication

Top Echelon Network urges recruiters to break the chain of communication with a candidate for a period of no less than 18 months after:

  • The candidate is placed in a direct hire position.
  • The placement fee is received and split between the two recruiters.
  • The guarantee period is satisfied.

Assuming the chain of communication was broken, if that candidate decides on their own after 18 months to initiate contact with either of the recruiters, that is their prerogative.

Tip #2: Create Alerts to Keep Yourself Up-to-Date

You can create a Hot Job Alert based solely on the major discipline codes of your area of specialization. This will keep you up-to-date on what is happening in your community and who is active in that niche.

Not only that, but you can also set up Candidate Alerts and Recruiter Alerts.

Always treat all Top Echelon Network members and Top Echelon Network candidates with respect and professional courtesy. Specifically, provide feedback and maintain professionalism with ALL correspondence.

In other words, treat them the way you would like to be treated.
