Proven Protocols for Working a Job in TE, Part 1

There are over 1,000 job orders in Top Echelon’s recruiting network. This is a good thing, since job orders are scarcer than they were a year ago. Heck, they’re scarcer than they were are the beginning of this year.

And since there are 1,000 job orders and many Network members who are eager to work these jobs, I thought it would be prudent to review some best practices for working a job in TE. So that is exactly what I will doing, starting with this—the first in a series of blog posts regarding the topic.

And I’m going to start where it makes the most sense to: the beginning. Here are the first four protocols for working a job in Top echelon Network:

#1Read the Network recruiting instructions.

This is where the job recruiter will tell you things that you need to know and of which you need to be aware. More specifically, these are things that you need to know before you read the rest of the description and call them.

The job recruiter put that information there for both their benefit and your benefit. They don’t really have the time to explain the things that are listed in this field. When you follow this step, it helps everyone become more efficient and effective in the call to work the job.

#2Evaluate the job.

Ask yourself if the job is in your area of expertise or in an area in which you are capable of recruiting. You are asking this question for a simple reason. You do not want to engage with the job order recruiter and ask them to teach you how to recruit in their space.

They are not going to want to do that, and I certainly do not blame them. Nobody has time to waste.

#3Check your inventory.

If you use the Big Biller recruiting software, run a search to see what’s in your inventory. That way, when you call the job order recruiter, you can tell them that you have X number of candidates to whom you can market this job as one of your stages of recruiting for the position.

These are all steps that you should take before you call the job order recruiter. As you might have already guessed, there are also protocols involved for when you make that call, and I will address those in the next blog post in this important series.
