The Recruiter of the Week is Wendy Jespersen!
In many ways, recruiter Wendy Jespersen of Alliance Search Group, Inc. is the model Top Echelon Network recruiter.
Wendy started recruiting in 1992, opened her own agency in 1999, and joined Top Echelon’s split network on September 12, 2018.
Since that time, Wendy, who works a Manufacturing desk, has enjoyed considerable success as a member of the Network. In fact, she’s made seven split placements since joining.
Wendy has made those seven splits with two different trading partners. She’s made five with David Manns of Access Staffing and two with veteran recruiter and Network member Terry Rhodes of NewCareers.
Wendy is a model Network recruiter for multiple reasons. First, she embraces the Four Pillars of Top Echelon Network—Quality, Communication, Trust, and Active Participation.
Second, she utilizes more than one Top Echelon service, allowing her to save time and maximize the return she receives on her investment.
Third, she recognizes and embraces the “Spirit of the Network,” which means that she’s split-minded and does not view making splits as a last resort on her recruiting desk.
For all of these reasons, Wendy Jespersen is Recruiter of the Week in Top Echelon Network!
Wendy Jespersen: the secret to her success
We wanted Wendy to say a few words about the success that she’s enjoyed in Top Echelon. Thankfully, she agreed to do so!
“I joined TE a year ago. I have to say I wish I had joined years ago. I have had my company for 20 years and have a strong network of client companies and job orders. I usually have too many job orders. We are a small firm, and in order to remain competitive and provide the service of high-quality candidates to our clients, I needed to expand our recruiting efforts.
“The quality recruiters in the Network and the longevity in the industry that most of our trading partners have is what impresses me the most. I partner with specific recruiters I have met within the Network on some searches and have had success posting our jobs on the Network and utilizing the Jobs Feed. It depends on the search, as there are different ways to utilize the Network’s resources to get the most qualified candidates.
“We are a former Bullhorn database office user and switched to Big Biller when we joined TE. The software integrated within the Network has allowed easier candidate tracking and better communication with our trading partners, freeing us up for more time to make placements. The entire package—a network of quality trading partners, Big Biller, the MEGA Database, and the Jobs Feed—provides tools that we need to remain competitive and continue to grow!”
So congratulations to Wendy Jespersen for her production and success in Top Echelon Network and for being named Recruiter of the Week!

“[This is] my second placement with Terry this quarter! Thank you for providing high-quality candidates for some very difficult-to-fill positions. I just joined TE this past fall and this is my sixth split placement in the Network. I have four splits with David Manns. He is a high-quality trading partner, as well. I’m very happy with my decision to join TE!”
