The Power of the Network: Split Partner Perseverance

There are many things that are needed to be a successful recruiter. Some of those things are patience, confidence, and persistence. However, in this installment of “The Power of the Network,” we’re going to examine perseverance.

That’s because making a placement is almost never a slam-dunk. It’s rarely a straight line. Instead, it’s often a convoluted and winding path that takes many twists and turns. All it takes is one wrong move. Twist when you should have been turning, and the whole placement burns to the ground. (Metaphorically speaking, of course.)

Perseverance culminates in placements

The case study below illustrates perseverance in a split network. When recruiters are able to tag-team a placement, their chances for success increase. The split partners involved are able to pool their resources, which include:

  • Experience in the profession and the skills acquired during that time
  • Talent involving human interaction and/or persuasion
  • Time and energy to address whatever concerns may arise

Who has more perseverance? One recruiter . . . or two recruiters who are pooling their resources to achieve a common goal? If you guessed two recruiters, you’re correct!

Members of Top Echelon’s recruiting network do more than just split the placement fee. They also split the workload during the recruiting process. As they say (whoever they are), “Many hands make light work.”
