Top Echelon Recruiters are the Best of the Best
In last week’s issue of The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog, we talked about how Karen Akbal-Sturgeon of KLA Industries is taking her entire office of recruiters to the 2012 Top Echelon Network Fall Conference in Chicago this October.
This week, we’re highlighting Jim Petitpren and Pam Petitpren of The PRA Group, Inc., who are also planning to attend the Fall Conference. However, their story is a bit different, and this is why:
- They joined Top Echelon Network as Preferred Member recruiters in February of this year.
- They immediately registered for the National Convention, which was held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tenn.
- So far, Jim has already made two split placements. He made those splits with Eric Berg of JN Adams & Associates, Inc. and Judy Kaplan of Prof’l Recruiting Consultants.
- When online registration for the Fall Conference went live, Jim and Pam were among the first Preferred Members to sign up.
Recently, we asked them why they were so anxious to attend another Top Echelon Network event, and this is what Pam had to say:
“Top Echelon Recruiters are the best of the best. We met so many great new Trading Partners and began so many great new relationships, the [National Convention] was an event that gave us energy and a new perspective on how we do our recruiting, in and out of Top Echelon Network.
“The content of the recruiter discussions was extremely valuable and the speaker was great.
“Besides, it’s nice to get out of the office and get fresh ideas and perspectives from other recruiters whose business models are similar to ours. There’s so much to talk about and learn from one another.”
The Fall Conference is scheduled for Thursday, October 11, and Friday, October 12, at the Sheraton Chicago O’Hare. Early Bird Registration for the conference is currently underway. The price of Early Bird is just $210 per person.
However, this price won’t be around forever. Sign up now and plan to join us in Chicago for a great training and networking event!
