“Tips for Splits”: Join Core Groups and Establish a Reputation
Welcome to the next installment in our series of blog posts about how YOU can experience more success as a member of Top Echelon Network, specifically how you can make more split placements.
This week’s piece of advice comes from Cindy Andrew Cordell, CPC of Corporate Resources, LLC. According to Cordell, recruiters who want to experience more split placement success should establish a solid reputation for themselves within the Network.
Specifically, she recommends joining a Core Group, either a Virtual Core Group or a Regional Core Group.
“Try to participate in the Core Groups,” said Cordell. “I think it’s important, and I know that it’s made a difference for me.”
In addition to being a frequent attendee at Top Echelon conferences and conventions, Cordell also attends Virtual Core Group meetings. These meetings are held in specific industries every month, and Director of Network Operations Drea Codispoti, CPC/CERS conducts these meetings.
“I attend the Accounting and IT [Virtual Core Group] meetings,” said Cordell. “We all share job orders during the meeting, and if I see a job that I might be able to help with, I call that recruiter and talk with them about it afterward. If I’m not able to attend a particular meeting, Drea sends out a list of the jobs that were shared.”
Active Participation is one of the Four Pillars of Top Echelon Network, and according to Cordell, it goes a long way toward helping recruiters establish a reputation within the Network.
“If you get your face out there and you’re able to establish a reputation, other recruiters will call you when they need help,” said Cordell. “By being known in TE, you’ll get more phone calls. When other recruiters have a hot job, they call me to see if I can help them.
“Get to know other people in Top Echelon. That’s a great way to start having more success.”
How about you? Has participating in Core Groups in Top Echelon Network led to more split placement success? Do you participate in a Virtual Core Group, a Regional Core Group, or both?
