Placements by Discipline in the Network for 2017

At the end of every year (or the beginning, depending on how you look at it), we compile certain statistics for our recruiting network. This includes placements by discipline in Top Echelon Network.

And we’re back with those numbers again this year!

Of course, these represent final numbers for the calendar year 2017. That’s defined as January 1 through December 31.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, let’s present the numbers first, shall we? Below are the placements by discipline in Top Echelon Network for 2017:

Discipline Code Placement %
Accounting (00) 4.9%
Finance & Banking (05) 0.8%
Engineering (10) 17.2%
Scientific (15) 3.6%
IT/Information Systems/Data Processing (20) 10.5%
Industry & Manufacturing (25) 27.5%
Sales & Marketing (30) 10.9%
Insurance (35) 1.0%
Technology & Technologists (40) 2.4%
Personnel & Human Resources (45) 2.4%
Construction (50) 4.9%
Real Estate (55) 0.0%
Healthcare (60) 12.8%
Service (65) 0.8%
Retail (70) 0.0%
Miscellaneous (99) 0.4%

The winning discipline: Industry & Manufacturing

Once again, the most placements in the Network were made in Industry & Manufacturing (27.5%). This discipline has long been the most productive discipline in TE. That’s been the case since the Network was founded as Nationwide Interchange in 1988.

Not only, but a lot of the “usual suspects” are found within the top five:

  • Engineering—17.2%
  • Healthcare—12.8%
  • Sales & Marketing—10.9%
  • IT/Information Systems/Data Processing—10.5%

The fact that Sales & Marketing reached double digits is a good sign. That means companies are will to spend money on sales and marketing personnel. That, in turn, means that companies have the money to spend on sales and marketing personnel. (Which, of course, means that they have money to spend on recruiting fees to hire said sales and marketing personnel.)

Other disciplines of interest include Accounting and Construction, both of which accounted for 4.9% of the placements in the Network. Scientific also made mark at 3.6%.

The bottom line: if you work in these disciplines, then are placement opportunities for you in Top Echelon’s split network!

If you haven’t made any split placements in TE yet, then it’s time join the party. And our party organizer is Director of Network Operations Drea Codispoti, CPC/CERS. You can contact him  by calling 330.455.1433, x156 or by sending an email to
