Maria Hemminger of MJ Recruiters, LLC and Pat McCombs, CPC of KB Search Team, LLC are tremendously successful recruiters and Top Echelon Network members. However, they had never made a split placement together until just recently.

And the split they made illustrates perfectly what makes them model Network members.

As you can see by the comments below, Pat submitted a candidate to MJ Recruiters back in 2007. Fast-forward 12 years. Members of MJ Recruiters found the candidate while searching through their Big Biller recruiting software database. As it turns out, the candidate was a perfect fit for one of their clients’ open job orders.

Did Maria simply place the candidate and not tell Pat that she did so, thereby collecting the entire fee for herself? Of course not! She honored the candidate referral, even though Pat had referred the candidate 12 years earlier.

Would every recruiter do that? Sadly, probably not.

But recruiters in Top Echelon Network DO, and that’s why they’re in our split network. Because they’re high-quality, ethical recruiters who do the right thing.

Maria has made 147 placements in Top Echelon’s recruiting network. Her cash-in total within the Network is $1.1 million.

Pat has made 114 placements in Top Echelon Network. Her cash-in total within the Network is $930K.

Both of these recruiters exemplify The Four Pillars of Top Echelon Network. Those Pillars are Quality, Communication, Trust, and Active Participation.

They do the right thing, they act with integrity, and they represent themselves, their agencies, and the Network in the best way possible.

Congratulations to Maria and Pat on making this great split placement!

“We found [the candidate] working searches in our Big Biller database. He was actually presented by Pat and her team to MJ Recruiters in 2007. You never know when you are going to place someone from your database, and we are always happy to add strong candidates to our database from our trading partners. Thank you to KB Search Team for reviewing our positions.”

(Editor’s note: This is the first Network split placement that Maria and Pat have made together in Top Echelon.)

At Top Echelon Network, we love recruiters who love split placements. And Network member Brian McMahon of Brian McMahon & Associates loves split placements.

Brian is relatively new to the recruiting profession, joining its ranks in 2014. He’s also relatively new to Top Echelon’s recruiting network. Brian McMahon & Associates joined the Network in February of 2018.

However, during the past year and a half, Brian has made 13 placements in Top Echelon. He’s made those placements with five different split recruiting partners.

Those partners include Michael Agen (five splits,), Steve Schroeder (four splits), Greg Fisher (two splits), Darrin Skinner (one split), and Melissa Truax (one split). Steve and Greg have split two rather large fees, both of which were over $40K.

So McMahon & Associates has paid $2,340 in Top Echelon Network membership dues over the past 18 months. During that same time span, Brian’s cash-in total within the Network is $106,378.

That’s a rather substantial return on his split network investment.

And it’s one of the reasons Brian is the Recruiter of the Week in Top Echelon Network!

Brian McMahon: the secret to his success

We wanted Brian to say a few words about the success that he’s enjoyed so far in TE. Thankfully, he agreed to do so.

“To the extent we have been successful in Top Echelon, we believe our decision to collaborate with a few very responsive partners and develop close partnerships has been key.”

So congratulations to Brian McMahon for his production and success in the Network and for being named Recruiter of the Week!

“Thank you, Brian! Let’s make it happen again! Keep the candidates coming! I am proud to have you as my recruiting partner!”

The selection process for the Recruiter of the Week Award is based upon multiple criteria, including production within Top Echelon Network, adherence to the Network Policies and Golden Rules, the spirit of networking that the recruiter displays while interacting with other members, and the level of commitment that the recruiter exhibits in regards to their Network membership overall. The Recruiter of the Week is a true embodiment of The Four Pillars of Top Echelon Network—Quality, Communication, Trust, and Active Participation.

I have good news. We’ve extended Early Bird Registration for the upcoming Top Echelon Fall Conference to Saturday, September 7!

I would normally say you would have until the end of the business day to register. However, Saturday is NOT a business day. As a result, you’ll have until the end of the usual day. (The devil is in the details.)

If you register before the end of the day on Saturday, you can do so for just $249 per person. However, if you don’t, do you know what happens? Yes, the price goes up.

As always, we strive to keep the cost of our recruiter networking events as low as possible. That’s because we want to make it easier for you to attend. These events are nothing without the participation of our valued members.

Register now, attend in October

This year’s Fall Conference is scheduled for Monday, October 21, through Wednesday, October 22. The Sheraton O’Hare Suites (formerly the Sheraton Gateway Suites) is once again the site of the conference.

Our room rate with the Sheraton O’Hare Suites is $189 per night. That rate is good for Top Echelon split network members attending the conference for the dates mentioned above.

To make hotel reservations at the Sheraton O’Hare Suites, call 1.847.699.6300. Be sure to reference the “Top Echelon conference” and its dates when you make the reservation.

There are a limited number of rooms available at that rate for our group. Consequently, they’ll be given out on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Sheraton is located near the Chicago O’Hare Airport. A courtesy shuttle will be available for your transportation.

You do NOT have to stay at the Sheraton O’Hare Suites, though. You also have the option of staying at any hotel of your choice and traveling to the Sheraton.

How and where to register

Now . . . how can you register for the Fall Conference? Once again, we have a special website for conference registration.

Click HERE to visit that website, which contains the following information:

  • The preliminary agenda
  • The speakers (including Aaron Eastlack of Haley Marketing!)
  • A link to register for the conference
  • A link to book your room at the Sheraton O’Hare Suites

Yes, I want to register!

It’s a proven fact that attending our events helps recruiters enjoy more success as members of Top Echelon Network. This event will be no different.

I can promise you that there will be sessions and activities specifically designed to help increase your billings. And I don’t mean just your TE billings. I mean your overall billings, as well.

So sign up, save some money, and make more split placements!

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!
