Success Formula: Persistence + Patience = Split Placements

There are many formulas for making split placements in Top Echelon’s recruiting network, but this week’s installment of “‘Comments’ and Compliments” in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog illustrates one perfectly.  That formula is as follows:

Persistence + patience = split placements

That’s because the recruiters involved in this week’s installment of the feature reference both “patience” and “persistence” in their comments regarding their split placements.  Obviously, both were instrumental in the deal coming to fruition.

'Comments' and ComplimentsAs a bonus, one of the split placements highlighted is the first between the recruiters, which means that it could be the first of many.  After all, when you’ve rewarded for your efforts with another recruiter with a placement fee, you’re more likely to work with that recruiter again . . . and make another split placement.

If you’d like to thank another recruiter for their efforts in a split placement situation, send your information to  Your comments might be included in an upcoming issue of The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog.
