TE Recruiters Make THIS Many Placements Per Year

We’ve been asking Top Echelon Network members ALL kinds of crazy questions lately, such as:

  • On average, how many different clients do you place with each year?
  • How many job orders are you working right now?

Well, maybe those questions aren’t that crazy. But this week’s question . . . well, this week’s question is absolutely insane! That question is (drum roll, please):

What is the average number of placements you make per year, both split and non-split?


The choice of answers that we provided is listed below, along with the percentage of recruiters that selected each one:

  • 1-5 — 3.8%
  • 6-10 — 21.0%
  • 11-15 — 32.4%
  • 16-20 — 14.3%
  • 21-25 — 8.6%
  • More than 25 — 20.0%

Many, many placements

The “sweet spot” when it comes to how many placements Network recruiters make on an annual basis is apparently between 11 and 15. That’s because it was the most popular answer at 32.4%. That’s nearly a third of the vote.

Up next in the results are between 6 and 10 placements (21%) and between 16 and 20 (14.3%).

The third-most popular answer was “more than 25” at 20%. Of course, it would be nice to know exactly how many placements these recruiters typically make. But that information is beyond the reach of this poll. Maybe next time.

Behind that answer were those recruiters making between 21 and 25 placements (8.6%).

In last place? Those recruiters who chose between one and five placements per year. That percentage registered a not-too-hefty 3.8%.

Sophisticated formula for success

Here’s the good news: Top Echelon Network recruiters make a lot of placements!

Of course, we at Top Echelon want experienced, highly successful recruiters as part of our network. That’s one of the key parts of our highly sophisticated split placement formula, which is as follows:

  • Entice talented, experienced, and successful recruiters to join our split placement network.
  • Provide those recruiters with the tools, software, and opportunities they need to network with one another and share hot job orders and candidates.
  • Wait for the “magic” to happen.

Okay, maybe it’s not that sophisticated.

The bottom line is that Top Echelon Network recruiters know what they’re doing. They do what they do well, and they have the placement numbers to back it up.

We just need more of you. So if you know of any colleagues who might be a good fit for Network membership, you know . . . send them our way. There might be $100 in it for you.
