Virtual Core Groups for January: Bumped Back a Week

Drea Codispoti, CPC/CERSAThe year 2013 is rushing up to greet us!  (I hope it doesn’t greet us rudely, but I’m not sure we can afford to be choosy.)

And with a New Year—and a new month—comes a new Virtual Core Group (VCG) conference call schedule for Top Echelon Network.

And yes, the New Year already brings with it some unique challenges, starting with the fact that January 1 falls on a Tuesday.  That means your first day in the office, at the earliest, will be Wednesday, January 2.

With that in mind, I came to the conclusion that many of you might not be ready to participate in a VCG conference call on Thursday, January 3.  As a result, I’ve pushed the conference call schedule for the month of January back a week!

Virtual Core Group meetings are regularly scheduled conference calls for Preferred Member recruiters who work in the same industry or niche.

During these calls, recruiters share information about the activity they’re seeing, they share hot job orders and candidates, and they also bounce ideas off one another.  These are the activities that lead most directly to making split placements.

Below is the Virtual Core Group teleconference call schedule for the month of January (all times listed are Eastern Standard Time).

If you think you’d like to start a new Virtual Core Group—or join an existing one—please contact me!

I hope you all enjoy a great New Year’s holiday.  If you can, try to stay out of the snow as much as possible, try to stay warm, and try to attend a VCG conference call meeting next month!

I mean it.
