Okay, I get it: there are no eggs pictured in the basket above. There are hamburgers. Well, that happens to work out just fine because I like hamburgers more than I like eggs.

But you get the point. And to bring the point across a little more forcefully, we recently posted a poll question in the Members’ Area. This question dealt directly with the concept of “putting all of your eggs in one basket.”

How so? Let’s find out! The question that we asked is as follows:

Of the job orders you’re currently working, how many clients do they represent?

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

  • One (1) — 4.1%
  • Two (2) — 12.2%
  • Three (3) — 22.4%
  • Four (4) — 18.4%
  • Five (5) — 9.2%
  • Six (6) or more — 33.7%

Don’t become a “basket case”

The good news is that Top Echelon Network recruiters appear to be rather balanced when it comes to their clients and job orders. The evidence: over a third of poll participants (33.7%) chose “Six (6) or more” as their answer.

The next-most popular answers in the poll were “Three” at 22.4% and “Four” at 18.4%. Since we like to add numbers almost as much as Sesame Street, let’s add those percentages. Upon doing so, we come to this conclusion:

Nearly three-fourths of the recruiters participating in this poll (74.5%) have job orders that are represented by at least three clients.

On the flip side, of course, over a quarter of poll participants have job orders representing one or two clients. Once again, though, they represent a smaller percentage.

Putting “all of your eggs in one basket” means working job orders for just one client. Even two clients is a stretch. (At the very least, you’re putting yourself at risk.)

Do YOU need more clients and job orders? Do YOU need more candidates? Looking to maximize your membership and make more placements in Top Echelon’s recruiting network?

Last week, we presented a video message from industry trainer Barb Bruno of Good as Gold Training. Why? Because she will be one of the main speakers at the upcoming 2018 Top Echelon National Convention.

The other main speaker is none other than Greg Doersching of Bullseye Mentor. Like Barb, Greg has served as the main speaker at Top Echelon recruiter networking events in the past. And also like Barb, he’s a proven veteran of the recruiting industry.

Video did NOT kill the recruiting star

Once again, this will be our 30th anniversary convention. In fact, we’re celebrating our birthday is just a few days. That’s just one of the reasons we want you to visit our special 30th anniversary convention website.

In the meantime, though, Greg is also here with a special video message about the National Convention. Although there is no dog accompanying Greg in his message, you can plainly see that he is a fan of the Green Bay Packers. He is also a fan of running a fully powered, optimally fueled, kick-butt recruiting desk.

But don’t take it from me. Greg is here to tell you more . . .
