How Many Perm Placements Did YOU Make in 2017?

They (whoever “they” is) say that recruiting is a numbers game. That’s because it is. It’s a game filled with a whole lot of numbers, all of which lead to the big number: perm placements.

(Or if you want to split hairs, the amount of money generated from those placements. But that’s a topic for another blog post.)

But for the purposes of this blog post, we wanted to see how many placements YOU made last year. That’s why we whipped up this poll question:

How many perm placements did you make in 2017?

The choice of answers that we provided is listed below, along with the percentage of split network recruiters that selected each one:

  • None — 3.0%
  • 1-10 — 37.0%
  • 11-20 — 44.0%
  • 21-30 — 5.0%
  • More than 30 — 11.0%

Perm placements galore

Two answers dominated this poll. They were “11-20” at 44% and “1-10” at 37%. That means 81% of poll participants made between 1 and 20 perm placements in 2017.

What about the other results? We’re glad you asked. Well, there are the 3% of recruiters who chose “none” as their answer. I don’t know exactly how to comment on that.

Then we have the big producers. Five percent (5%) of recruiters indicated that they made between 21 and 30 placements last year. Then another 11% chose “more than 30” as their answer. How many more than 30 did they make? Another good question. I don’t have the answer to that question.

However, this is still all good information. It helps to show the level of success that Network members enjoy within the recruiting profession. The results of this poll appear to indicate that the majority of them make at least one perm placement per month. Obviously, some average two per month.

But it’s 2018 now. A New Year with new opportunities. Can you match your placement total of a year ago? Can you exceed it?

More importantly, can your split recruiting partners help you? We think they can. So let us help you help yourself.
