WITH TOP ECHELON NETWORK RECRUITERS
Corporate Management Solutions Inc is a Preferred Member of Top Echelon
Network, Inc., the worlds largest network of independently owned recruiting
firms. Because our candidates often ask questions about our global network of
recruiters, we have developed this explanation which may answer your questions. Should you
have any other questions which are not answered below, please contact us.
What exactly is a "network of professional recruiting
firms" such as the Top Echelon Network?
In a network of professional recruiting firms, hundreds to thousands of recruiters share
information about their candidates and their job orders. (Please note, we will only submit
your resume to the network if you give us permission.) This exposure can give a candidate
who is open to relocation a significant advantage by exposing his/her qualities and
achievements to many recruiters. Recruiters in the Top Echelon Network place candidates in
middle- to upper-level positions in many specialties and industries, including
engineering, manufacturing, data processing, sales, etc. Top Echelon Network Recruiters
are involved in the hiring process on a daily basis with companies of all sizes.
How do these recruiters share their information?
The Top Echelon Network provides us with access to their global database of thousands of
candidates and job opportunities. When a recruiter is looking for candidates with a
specific skill, he can search the database and find all of the candidates who meet that
requirement. Top Echelon Network Recruiters can also search for the perfect career
opportunity for a particular candidate. If submitted to the database, your resume can be
viewed by numerous professional recruiters. It is quite possible that one of these
recruiters may find that your resume meets their clients needs.
Who will see my resume?
Top Echelon Network Recruiters are ethical professionals who understand and respect your
concerns. Because all
Top Echelon Network Members must pass certain criteria before they are admitted into the
network, the level of professionalism is very high. We can ask our affiliates to keep your information confidential unless you give
them authority to present it to a client company that may want to hire you.
We can also submit your resume to the network as a "John Doe" with
your name, contact and other identifying information removed.
What do I have to do?
- Will I have to pay any fees?
No. All career opportunities listed on the Top Echelon Network Database are those for
which the client company pays all recruiting fees. You have nothing to lose . . . only
opportunities to gain.
Your best strategy is to be open and honest with us regarding salary and
relocation preferences. Since professional recruiters across the globe have access to your
resume, there is a chance that you may be considered for employment in another region of
the country or world. Of course, you can choose which geographical region and even which
salary level is best for you. In fact, you can choose to consider only opportunities in
your home area with a specific salary. However, the most "place-able" candidates
generally are open to relocation and have flexible salary expectations.
What should I expect?
Each recruiter has different needs depending on the job opportunity that they are trying
to fill for a client company. The market demand for your skills and qualifications will
determine the amount of response you receive. If your resume is submitted to the network,
it will remain active for nine months. During that time, you may receive calls directly
from other members of the Top Echelon Network. The recruiters who are interested in your
qualifications will maintain open communication with both you and us. We ask that you tell
us about any contact that you have with our network affiliates. If you choose to be
submitted to the network, we will discuss with you our routine for handling other
I do not have to pay anything, and I may receive career
opportunities? It just sounds too good to be true.
Recruiters want and need to have the resumes of qualified candidates. In fact, we
can better help our client companies fill positions if we have access to an extensive
number of career-driven individuals. As a recent article in The Wall Street Journal
states, "you never know when a recruiter might present a better opportunity."
Since we recruiters earn our living by placing candidates within a company, we are
grateful to have access to candidates who have valuable qualifications. Working with
recruiters costs you nothing but provides us with another resource for the heart of our
How do I sign up?
Just tell us that you are willing to be submitted to the network. You may be asked
to fill out a form about your qualifications. We will do the rest. It is that easy!
