2 Steps for Qualifying Job Orders in Top Echelon

Welcome to the third part of my four-part blog post series about how to enjoy more “Exporter Success” in Top Echelon’s recruiting network. This part deals with the steps for qualifying job orders in the Network.

The first part in this series dealt with creating alerts properly.

The second part dealt with thoroughly understanding the job description.

In this latest installment, I’d like to discuss the steps for qualifying the job order. Last week, I stressed the importance of finding a job order within your area of expertise in our split network.

Important steps for success

Why is that? Because it’s NOT fair to expect the job order recruiter to teach you how to recruit in their niche.

Okay, so let’s say that you’ve found a job that’s in a niche, industry, and/or discipline in which you’re strong. Now what?

Now you qualify the job order, specifically by doing the following two things:

#1—Review the details of the job order carefully.

#2—Once you understand the details and nature of the job order, CALL the recruiter to discuss and qualify the job with them.

I know what you’re thinking: “But I don’t know this recruiter. I’ve never worked with them before.”

If you don’t already know them, this is a great time to get to know them, to find out how they like to work, and to start building a working relationship. This also helps to eliminate miscommunication, which will reduce wasted time.

As you know, time is of the essence during the recruiting process. It’s better to spend two minutes up front to prevent the loss of two days (or more) down the line. It could mean the difference between closing a deal and a dead end.

Next week, I’ll present the fourth step toward achieving “Exporter Success” and wrap up this series of blog posts.
