Trust is one of the Four Pillars of Top Echelon Network . . . and it’s also the focus of this story about honesty and integrity in the Network.
Janet Miller of Computer Management, Inc. here and Jeff Gilbert of Kingfish Technology, LLC have been Trading Partners for quite some time. In fact, the two have made a total of 14 split placements together, but it was their most recent split that demonstrates the fact their Trading Partner relationship has evolved to what could almost be called the “Masters Level.”
Miller and Gilbert have made three split placements so far in 2013. In June, the two placed a SFDC Consultant. Gilbert was the job order recruiter, and Miller was the candidate recruiter. After the placement had been completed, the candidate gave Gilbert the name of a Senior Sales Director.
“Jeff happened to comment to me that [the candidate] gave him the name of somebody,” said Miller, who’s made a total of 63 placements in Top Echelon Network. “I don’t place sales people, so I really didn’t give it that much attention. I didn’t know that Jeff called the candidate.”
Call the candidate Jeff did, and you guessed it . . . place the candidate Jeff did, as well.
So what did he do after that?
“Jeff called me up a month ago, and he said, “Good news, you just made $17,000,’” said Miller. “He had placed the candidate as a Senior Sales Executive. He never told me that the candidate was interviewing, but he called me after the placement was made to tell me he was splitting the fee with me.”
The total fee for this split placement: $34,000.
“The candidate who gave Jeff the name of this other candidate never called me and told me that he did so,” said Miller. “Jeff set up all of the interviews and did all of the preps, and after it was over, he called me to tell me that I had made all this money.”
Needless to say, Miller thinks very highly of Gilbert and values the Trading Partner relationship that she has with him.
“Jeff is such an honest recruiter,” she said. “What he did with this placement blew me away.”
