The Importance of Your Name!

Written on May 13th, 2013 by in Blog

Your name is part of the overall branding of your company. If you are confident in the niche you will pursue, you can include your niche in your name like, Engineering Search. However, you would not include your niche in your name if you are unsure or believe you will expand into other areas of specialization in the future.

This does indicate the profession of these owners, but does this name indicate that this business only places women or only employs women? Select a name that will be appealing to your candidates and clients.
