Just how do you get your job postings to stand out and get attention?

Well, one key to accomplishing that is the job title.  The job title is often overlooked and sometimes used in the wrong way.  However, in this episode of “Top Echelon TV,” President Mark Demaree and Communications Coordinator Matt Deutsch share six ways in which recruiters can ensure that their job title can help their job posting garner the attention they want.


What are your thoughts regarding the job title in job postings?  How important is it?  Do you agree with the six methods we’ve advocated in this episode of “Top Echelon TV”?

True, there weren’t that many Preferred Members at the 2011 National Convention in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., last week, not as many as we’re used to for that event, anyway.

But those that did attend were 100% committed to networking, training, and of course, fun.

As there always is, split placements will result from the National Convention.  Because they attended, some of the Preferred Members will share job orders and information and that relationship will eventually result in a split placement.  That’s exactly how we’ve drawn it up, and I’m happy to say, that’s how it happens.

However, rather than have me go on and one about the benefits of attending these events, I’m going to let some of the recruiters who attended do the talking.

I wanted to let you know that I was very impressed with your selection of Jon Bartos as the main speaker at the National Convention. Jon shared a great deal of informative material and provided some useful forms and check lists that can be used immediately. In addition, the free eBook he offered will be beneficial to some of us that are technically challenged. Once again thank you and your staff for your hard work at this year’s National Convention.

God bless!

Thanks so much for the Top Producing Recruiter plaque.  I was very disappointed to not be able to attend the TEN Conference in Ft. Lauderdale.  The timing coincided perfectly with the birth of my 7th grandchild, and since the birth was a c-section, I had to babysit my granddaughter while mom was in the hospital for 4 days and dad stayed with her. 

Thanks for all the great work that Top Echelon Network continues to do..  Being part of Top Echelon Network is certainly a key to my success as a recruiter!!   Your whole team is just outstanding!

I also want to let you know that we’ll soon be sending out an email survey to the Network Membership asking them what we can do to make these events more attractive, more enjoyable, and more productive.  After all, the Fall Conference is this October, and we want all of you to attend!

Matt DeutschYou might remember that I blogged about short, informational Network videos that were in the works.  (Click here to read the original blog post regarding these videos.)

They’re here!  Well, a few of them are here, anyway, and more are on the way.

As I mentioned before, these videos are 30 seconds to 60 seconds in duration, and the majority of them are located within the Top Echelon Network recruiter database software.  Specifically, they’ll be located right next to the written part of the website that also deals with that topic.

However, instead of a small video icon, there’s an embedded YouTube video.  All you have to do in order to start playing the video is to click on it.

So far, we’ve completed three videos.  Those videos deal with the following topics:

The first two videos on the list are located behind the Top Echelon Network software login.  The third one, which deals with the screening process, is on the outside of the Network website.

Are these comprehensive videos?  They are not.  They’re designed to provide enough information so that the person watching will have a working knowledge of the topics covered.

What we’re really interested in is your opinions and your feedback.  What other topics should be included in this series of training videos?  What else do you believe we should include in our training for Top Echelon Network, video-related or not?  You can either leave a comment on this blog post, give us a call, or send us an email.

'Comments' and ComplimentsIt’s baseball season!  What does that mean?  Well . . . other than the fact that it’s baseball season, it means that recruiters are hitting home runs in Top Echelon Network.  In other words, they’re making split fee recruiting placements with their Trading Partners.  That’s exactly what we want, of course, in addition to the Cleveland Indians winning the World Series.

However, since THAT probably isn’t going to happen (even though the Indians are currently in first place in their division), what is going to happen is that recruiters are going to keep making split placements with one another in Top Echelon recruiting network.

So, with that in mind, keep sending your compliments to us.  If you have comments for a Trading Partner regarding a split placement, please email those comments to
