At Top Echelon Network, we’re always looking for the next location for our National Convention.  We’ve been to some great places down through the years—a variety of cities located all throughout the United States.

As always, we take our cue from you, the Preferred Member recruiters of Top Echelon Network.  We want to go where you want to go . . . and that’s why we’re always asking where you want to go.  So it might not surprise you to know that we asked again!

We recently conducted a survey of Network recruiters, and that survey was based upon the following question:

Which of the following locations would be best for a Top Echelon Network National Convention?


The choice of answers that were provided is listed below, along with the percentage of recruiters who selected each answer:

  • Baltimore — 16.7%
  • Atlanta — 10.3%
  • Las Vegas — 34.6%
  • New Orleans — 29.5%
  • Denver — 9.0%


Network SurveyIt was definitely a close race, but Las Vegas beat New Orleans by a margin of 34.6% to 29.5%.  Top Echelon Network has held a National Convention at both locations in the past, and both events were highly successful.  However, the current Membership currently craves a return trip to Las Vegas.

Baltimore was third at 16.7%, followed by Atlanta at 10.3% and Denver and 9.0%.  Top Echelon has never held a National Convention in any of those cities, although the Network has had a regional event in Baltimore before.

Clearly, the results of this Network survey show that Top Echelon recruiters wish to attend a National Convention at a venue with plenty of entertainment options.


Where do YOU think we should go for a National Convention?  One of the destinations listed above . . . or some place that we didn’t even mention?

Candidate RecruiterMuch of the success recruiters enjoy in Top Echelon Network is predicated upon Members’ willingness to share their jobs with the rest of the Network.  The more jobs are shared, the more split placements are made.

We recently conducted a survey of Network recruiters in the Members’ Area to find out more about their attitudes about sharing jobs with other Members.

That survey was based upon the following question:

When you receive a job order from a client, how soon do you post it on TE?


The choice of answers that were provided is listed below, along with the percentage of Network recruiters who selected each answer:

  • Immediately — 35.6%
  • Within a few days — 26.0%
  • Within a week — 13.7%
  • Longer than a week — 15.1%
  • I don’t post my jobs on TE. — 9.6%


Network SurveyOver a third of participants post their jobs “immediately” to the Network, while another 26% post them “within a few days” and 13.7% post them “within a week.”

That means of the Network recruiters who responded to this survey, over three-fourths of them (75.3%) post their jobs within a week of receiving the job order from their client.

As for the nearly 10% of Network recruiters who don’t post their jobs on TE?  They might be exporters only, or they might share their jobs only with certain Trading Partners via email.


What are your practices within the Network?  Which of the survey choices above most closely describes the way in which you post jobs?
