Top Echelon Network President Mark Demaree and Membership Development Coordinator Drea Codispoti reveal where the money was in Top Echelon Network in 2010—specifically which industries were responsible for the most placements.  The top industry was Manufacturing, followed by Information Technology, Healthcare, Engineering, Sales & Marketing, and Accounting.

Once again, “Regular Communication with Trading Partner” was the number-one way in which Preferred Members made split placements.  Not only that, the amount of activity per firm rose in just about every category last year, including Offers Accepted per firm, Completed Placements per firm and jobs submitted per firm.  The only category that dropped was candidates submitted per firm.

Top Echelon Network would like to welcome the following recruiters and their firms as New Preferred Members.  We encourage the rest of the Membership to reach out to these folks and introduce yourself to our newest Members.  (Click on the recruiters’ names to visit their Recruiter Profile within Top Echelon Network.  You may be prompted to login to the system before being able to view their Profile.)

Remember, you can also see who’s currently applying for Preferred Membership.  The “Applying for Membership” section in the Members’ Area is located right below the “New Recruiters” section.  We’d like to welcome the recruiters listed above to Top Echelon Network and congratulate them on becoming Preferred Members.

Drea Codispoti, CPC/CERSWe want to fill Top Echelon Network with as many quality, experienced, and split-minded recruiters as we possibly can.  Over the years, we’ve found that the best way to do that is through referrals from current Preferred Members.  In other words, YOU!

However, it’s not as though we won’t reward you for your efforts.  Quite the contrary.  We’ve had a referral program in place for quite some time, one designed to reward those Preferred Members who provide us with quality referrals.  The details of that referral program are outlined below:

When you refer a recruiter to Top Echelon Network who becomes a Preferred Member as a result of your referral, we’ll pay you $20/month for each month that recruiter/agency is active in the Network for up to 36 months.  That’s a total possible referral fee of $720 for each referral.

Okay, so there’s a limit on the length of time that we’ll pay you for a referral—36 months or three years.  However, there’s no limit on the number of referrals that you can give us. Give us five, 10, 15, 20, or more.  If they become Preferred Members, we’ll pay you for all of them.

So, I’d be more than happy to do the math for you.  If you sent us six to eight referrals, we would pay you between $120 and $160/month, which would go a long way toward paying your entire Top Echelon invoice, provided that you’re paying for more than just Membership.

Of course, any recruiting firms that you refer to us will have to go through our four-stage screening process, the same as any firm that applies for Top Echelon Network Membership.  Once your referral makes it through the screening process, has been approved, and starts their Membership, then we’ll pay you the referral fee.

The benefit to you, beyond the referral fee, is this: with more quality, split-minded recruiters in the Network, the greater the chances that you’ll make more split placements.  That’s our ultimate goal, to help Preferred Members of the Network make more splits.  Having the opportunity to work and network with other recruiters definitely increases the odds of success.

If you know a recruiting firm that you believe would be a good fit for Top Echelon Network Preferred Membership, I encourage you to refer that firm to us.  Have the firm owner fill out the online application form and/or give us a call.

When they fill out the application form, there will be a place for them to include the name of a referring recruiter.  Make sure that they type your name into that field, so if they eventually become a Preferred Member of the Network, you’ll receive the proper credit and the $20/month for up to 36 months.

Quality is one of The Four Pillars of Top Echelon Network, and that’s just one of the many reasons we want to fill the Network with as many quality recruiters as possible . . . and that starts with your referrals.

Matt DeutschIf you asked recruiters what they want to do in 2011, the answer “Make more money while working fewer hours” might just be a popular response.  And those recruiters who attend the 2011 Top Echelon Network National Convention are going to find out exactly how they can do that.

That’s because Jon Bartos of Jonathan Scott International will be the featured speaker at the National Convention.  Two of the themes running through all three of his presentations will be that of “working smarter, not harder” and “making more money in less time.”  Jon’s sessions are scheduled for the second day of the convention, which is Saturday, May 14.

Below are the titles and descriptions of those sessions:
“The Mechanics of Making More and Working Less”

Recruiters everywhere are working harder and harder for the same results (and in some cases, less results).  How can this be stopped?  In this session, Jon will show attendees how to work more efficiently and effectively in everything they do, hitting upon three key areas1. Technique (process), 2. Time, and 3. Technology (including social media).

Jon Bartos“Business Development in a Recovering Economy”

In this session, Jon will share the most effective business development techniques for recruiters—the methods that are working now in today’s economic environment.  He’ll tell attendees what they should be doing and what they shouldn’t be doing.  It all comes down to making the correct decisions, and Jon will help you make the business decisions that are right for you.

“Using Technology in Recruiting Effectively”

When it comes to recruiting, technology goes beyond social media, although Jon will touch upon social media and social networking in this session.  However, he’ll discuss all aspects of technology and how recruiters should implement these aspects into their desk and recruiting process.  Once again, Jon will recommend what to use and what not to use . . . and he’ll tell you why.

And not only can you make more money in less time by attending the National Convention, you can also save money by attending.  That’s because if you sign up before Friday, January 14, you can still take advantage of the “Super Early Bird” registration price of just $275 per person.  Once again, that’s the lowest price we’ve ever offered for a National Convention.

But that price is only good until the end of the business day on Friday.  After that, the price goes up to $349 per person, which is the “Regular Early Bird” price.  The dates of the National Convention are Thursday, May 12, through Saturday, May 14, and the location is The Westin Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

I hope to see you there!
