As a member of Top Echelon’s recruiting network, you should be sharing ALL of your jobs with the rest of the Network’s recruiters.

There are many reasons why this is the case, not the least of which is that the Top Producers in the Network share all of their jobs. That’s one of the reasons they’ve become Top Producers in the first place.

However, this is the second part of an ongoing blog series in which I will examine all of the reasons why you should be sharing your jobs. (You can read the first part in the series by clicking HERE.)

Why have I embarked upon such an endeavor? Because sharing your jobs is better for you, your agency, and your trading partners. And we at Top Echelon are not successful unless you are successful.

So with all of this being said, below are five more reasons why you should be sharing ALL of your job orders with Top Echelon Network:

#1—Amplified Visibility and Reach

Sharing job orders in Top Echelon Network exponentially amplifies your visibility and reach. After all, tapping into the collective network of fellow recruiters broadens the spectrum of potential candidates.

Each recruiter within the Network possesses a unique pool of talent and specializes in distinct industries or niches. By sharing job orders, members expose opportunities to a diverse array of professionals who might not have encountered them otherwise.

This expanded reach, of course, can mean more split placements . . . and more money in your pockets. (Yes, it might be so much money that you need two pockets.)

#2—Access to Diverse Talent Pools

By sharing job orders in Top Echelon, members can gain access to a myriad of candidates with varied skill sets, backgrounds, and experiences. This diversity enables Network recruiters to tap into talent pools they might not have had access to independently.

A job order shared within the Network might resonate with a recruiter specializing in a particular industry or geographic location, thereby unlocking a wealth of potential candidates who align perfectly with the requirements.

In other words, you never know who somebody else knows. And that somebody else that somebody knows might be the perfect candidate for your client’s search assignment.

#3—Accelerated Placement Cycles

Time is of the essence in recruiting, where vacancies translate into productivity losses and revenue constraints. But I probably don’t have to tell you that.

Collaborating within Top Echelon Network expedites placement cycles significantly. When a job order is shared within the Network, multiple recruiters actively engage in sourcing candidates, conducting screenings, and presenting qualified candidates to the client.

This collective effort compresses the timeline from requisition to placement, as Network recruiters leverage their resources and expertise to expedite candidate identification and selection processes. As a result, members can capitalize on opportunities swiftly, thereby enhancing client satisfaction and reinforcing their reputation as trusted and reliable search consultants.

#4—Knowledge Sharing

Recruiters bring diverse perspectives, insights, and experiences to the table, enriching the collective intelligence of Top Echelon Network. By sharing job orders, members initiate dialogues, exchange best practices, and seek advice from peers, thereby cultivating a culture of continuous learning and improvement.

As you may have noticed, this enables Network recruiters to stay abreast of industry trends, emerging technologies, and evolving. As a result, recruiters within the Network are better equipped to navigate challenges, overcome obstacles, and capitalize on opportunities, which equates to earning more money in less time with less effort. Bazinga!

#5—Reciprocity and Network Support

Perhaps the most compelling reason to share all job orders within Top Echelon Network is the Principle of Reciprocity and network support. Sharing job orders is a demonstration of goodwill and commitment to collaboration.

Recruiters who actively participate in sharing job orders within Top Echelon not only increase their chances of receiving assistance in filling positions, but they also contribute to the overall synergy and cohesion of the Network. Conversely, withholding job orders diminishes the spirit of reciprocity and undermines the collective strength of the Network.

We do not want that, and ultimately, you do not want that, either.

As I said, this is just the first of multiple articles I will be writing about the subject of sharing ALL of your job orders with Top Echelon Network. Sharing all of your jobs is how you fill more job orders, make more placements, get more job orders, and get more clients . . . so start sharing today!

I’m pleased to announce that Training Tuesday webinars for Top Echelon Network membership are back . . . and they’re better than ever!

However, there is a disclaimer. (I know, there’s a disclaimer already and I just made the announcement.) That disclaimer is that there will not be a Network Training Tuesday webinar every single month for the rest of the year. However, there will be one in March, and more than likely, during the months immediately following March.

In fact, the webinar in February will be the first in a series of four webinars that addresses the topic of expectations as a member of Top Echelon’s recruiting network. And when I say expectations, I mean your expectations of Network membership and how you can make those expectations a reality.

So, without further adieu, below is information regarding the first webinar in our upcoming series . . .

Training Video: “Great Expectations: Taking Initiative and Being Proactive”


In the first part of this special four-part webinar series, Top Echelon Director of Network Operations Drea Codispoti, CPC/CERS will discuss the steps Network members need to take to be productive and profitable trading partners. The first step is to take initiative and be proactive.

During this information-packed session designed to help YOU fully leverage your Network membership and make more money, Drea will share the following:

  • The integral role of the Four Pillars of Top Echelon Network
  • How to create the proper presence as a Network member
  • Assessing what you offer to other Network members
  • How to design a Network development plan and then execute it
  • And much more!

Don’t settle for less. Expect MORE from your Top Echelon Network membership . . . and that starts by making an investment in it so that you can receive the proper return. Join Drea on February 27 and get ready to start “Taking Initiative and Being Proactive in Top Echelon”!

As you may have noticed, we’ve been releasing updates on a regular basis regarding Top Echelon’s recruiting software and also the Top Echelon Network software.

So you might be asking yourself, “Self, is there a place where I can see ALL of the Top Echelon product updates?”

If you asked yourself that question, then you’re in luck . . . because such a place does exist! That place is the Top Echelon Product Updates Page!

On that page, you can see the most recent updates and upgrades to our software. We break the updates into categories based upon the month that we released them. When you visit the page, you’ll notice that the updates go as far back as April of 2018. (Obviously, we’ve been updating the software for a lot longer than that, but that’s the current starting point for the page.)

Not only that, but we also supply an answer to the question, “What’s next?” According to the Top Echelon Product Updates Page, this is what’s next as of the publishing of this blog post:

  • New User Interface – A fresh, modern update is in progress for our user interface. This update will enhance usability and accessibility across all of Top Echelon Software. This will also set the stage for larger improvements in 2024, including a revamped main dashboard
  • Sequencing – String together a series of automatic actions with configured delays between each. This advanced feature will enable you to create automated campaigns as well as facilitate internal communications
  • AI Job Description Generator – Use AI to automatically generate a job description based on the Job Title and other fields such as Certification, Education, Compensation Requirements, Remote Status, and more
  • Indeed Job Feed – Top Echelon Recruiting Software is pursuing a new, improved Partnership with Indeed that will revolutionize the way you use both products! We will soon send Indeed a feed that includes all Jobs advertised on your Agency’s Job Board or Careers Page in Top Echelon. Your Agency may opt-out of this feed at anytime
  • A2P 10DLC Registration for Text Messaging – To ensure compliance with industry standards and regulations, we are requiring all agencies using text messaging to register in the A2P 10DLC program. This program provides a means to more easily identify fraudulent and/or malicious text messages while providing better deliverability to legitimate messages. We’re working on providing the ability to complete and send this information directly from the software. In the meantime, we’re able to register on your behalf by having a representative from your company complete and submit the following form: A2P 10DLC Company Registration Form

We also announce any beta testing of new features for those who want to help us make the software better. If you’re interested in Beta testing these new features, email us at

Of course, you may have also noticed that we send emails when we make updates and upgrades to our systems and software. However, not everybody opens the emails. Perhaps YOU are one of those people.

If that’s the case, then visiting the Top Echelon Product Updates Page on a regular basis could help keep you abreast of all the exciting new changes that we’re making to our software and systems for the expressed purpose of helping YOU make more placements.
