Poll: TE Members’ Thoughts After Three Quarters

The quarterly issue of The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog is as good a time as any to gauge the thoughts of Top Echelon Network members. So that’s what we did!

Specifically, we gauged their thoughts by posting two successive poll questions in the Members’ Area of the Top Echelon website. Both of these questions, in some way or another, had to do with the end of the third quarter of the year and/or the beginning of the fourth quarter.

As you can see below, what has been true about past poll questions in our recruiting network remains true about these poll questions: opinions vary.

Which makes sense, since Network members work in a variety of industries and niches. What works well for one agency does not necessarily work well for another, and vice-versa.

So while the market is good and job orders are plentiful, it’s not all rainbows and unicorns for search consultants. There are still challenges aplenty, and that figures to always be the case . . . no matter how good the market might seem.

Below are the two poll questions that we recently posed to Network recruiters.

Finish this sentence: through the first three quarters of 2019, my recruiting desk . . .

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

  • Is on FIRE! — 15.6%
  • Is running like a well-oiled machine. — 26.0%
  • Quite possibly has multiple personalities. — 24.7%
  • Needs a timeout. — 5.2%
  • Will need a miracle to match last year’s production. — 28.6%

How optimistic are you about your production in the fourth quarter?

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

  • Uber optimistic! — 16.8%
  • Pretty optimistic! — 33.7%
  • Cautiously optimistic — 21.8%
  • I am very much neutral. — 13.9%
  • I am NOT optimistic. — 13.9%

Just a reminder: we post a poll question in the Members’ Area every week. Once you participate in the poll, you can see the results as other Members cast their votes.

We usually post a new Members’ Area poll question on Monday. We usually do that, but we don’t always do that. We don’t like to be predictable.
