At the Top Echelon recruiting network, we constantly encourage recruiters to post ALL of their job orders to the Network databases. That’s because doing so increases the chances that they’ll make more placements and generate more revenue for their firms.
But don’t take it from us: take it from a Top Producer! That Top Producer is Pamela Ratz DeVille, CPC of the MMS Group in Brentwood, Tenn.
DeVille made seven Network splits in 2011 and four last year. She’s currently ranked in the top 40 in the Network in terms of overall production during the past 12 months. (Please, no references to Casey Kasem.)
In addition to posting all of her jobs to Top Echelon Network, Ratz-DeVille also advocates building and nurturing Trading Partner relationships and leveraging the power of the Hiring Hook recruiting websites.
Put all of that together, and Ratz-DeVille has made an investment in her recruitment membership in Top Echelon that has paid dividends in the form of split Network success . . . and continues to pay them.
