Terry Rhodes exemplifies everything that’s great about Top Echelon Network: hard work, commitment, and a drive to be the best.
Harrisonburg, Virginia (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
In the 25-year history of Top Echelon Network, an elite recruiter network of highly specialized search firms, only 18 recruiters have reached the $1 million plateau in terms of cash-in within the Network.
The latest Network recruiter to hit that mark is Terry Rhodes of NewCareers in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
Rhodes became an executive recruiter early in 1994 and joined Top Echelon Network as a Preferred Member later that year. Since joining Top Echelon, Rhodes has made a total of 125 Network placements.
NewCareers is a full-service executive recruiting firm serving the entire United States, through its affiliation with Top Echelon Network and its many clients throughout the country. As a result of these partnerships, NewCareers has access to over 4,000 available positions and over 40,000 candidates. During the past 19 years, NewCareers has been consistently rated in the top 10 in both total placements and split placements within Top Echelon Network.
A split placement is a situation in which one recruiter has a job opening and another recruiter has a qualified candidate to fill that job opening. Once the job recruiter’s client hires the candidate, the two recruiters then split the placement fee. NewCareers values this tool as an important piece of being able to satisfy its clients’ overall needs.
Rhodes’s milestone is all the more remarkable due to the fact that he’s a generalist and doesn’t specialize in one particular industry or niche. Having graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Business, he worked in the manufacturing industry for 24 years before starting his own recruiting firm.
“Perhaps nobody has made more split placements with as many different recruiters as Terry Rhodes,” said Top Echelon Network President Mark Demaree. “Terry takes networking to a whole new level, and he’s done it by being the consummate professional, by displaying the utmost in integrity, and by adhering steadfastly to the Four Pillars of the Network: Quality, Communication, Trust, and Active Participation. I feel fortunate to know Terry both as a recruiter and as a person.”
“Terry Rhodes exemplifies everything that’s great about Top Echelon Network: hard work, commitment, and a drive to be the best,” added Network Membership Development Coordinator Drea Codispoti, CPC/CERS. “Nobody is happier about the fact he’s reached this milestone than I am. Terry is as resilient as he is talented, and if we had a Recruiter Hall of Fame at Top Echelon, he would certainly be in it.”
