The Deadline for ‘Craziest Recruiting Story’ Entries Pushed Back

Matt DeutschLast week, I announced our contest for “The Top Echelon Network Craziest Recruiting Story of 2010,” and now I have some additional news regarding that contest: we’ve moved back the deadline for submitting entries!

Originally, the deadline was next Wednesday, December 22.  However, since we won’t be announcing the winner until after the beginning of the new year, we decided that we could provide some additional time for recruiters to submit their craziest story of 2010.

That means the new deadline is two weeks from today—Wednesday, December 29.  And remember the rules for the contest (and really, there aren’t that many rules).  It could be a story about clients.  It could be a story about candidates.  It could be a story about another recruiter.  It doesn’t matter.  It just has to be something wild, outrageous, and if possible, unbelievable.

Actually, the more unbelievable, the better (as long as it’s true . . . don’t be a fibber).  And since we’re talking about the world of recruiting, I’m sure that plenty of unbelievable stories have occurred during the past year.

There are three ways you can submit your “Craziest Recruiting Story”:

  • You can email your story to
  • You can post the story by including it in the comments section at the end of this blog.
  • You can give me a call at (330) 455-1433, Ext. 125 and relay your story to me.

Once again, the deadline for submitting your “Craziest Recruiting Story of 2010” is Wednesday, December 29.  We’ll announce the winner during the first part of January in the Recruiter Training Blog and also on Top Echelon TV.”

We’ve already had recruiters submit their stories, not just for 2010, but from other years, as well.  And you know what?  That’s a-okay.  If you’d like to submit stories that didn’t happen this year, we’ll be happy to accept them and publish them in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog at some point in the future.  After all, we’re not unreasonable.

So . . . what crazy things have happened to you this past year?  Does your story involve a candidate, a client, or another recruiter—or all three?  Did it cause you to lose a placement?  Did it cause you to lose hair?  Or consider retirement?  Move to Florida and play shuffleboard?  What?  Spill the beans.

Submit your story . . . and it might just be “The Top Echelon Network Craziest Recruiting Story of 2010.”
