WHAT DO HIRING AUTHORITIES EXPECT

When I address audiences of hiring authorities, I’m always stunned by their concerns, issues and what they expect from us. It’s interesting to note, that if we were asked to write a list of what we expect from our clients, many of the same topics would be on our list.

1. Honesty
2. Improved communication | feedback
3. Treated as a priority
4. Results
5. Follow up after the hire
6. Promptly address problems
7. More consultative

There are many decisions you will make prior to determining which clients to target for your new business.  These decisions include the following:

Procrastination is the #1 reason most people do not own their own business.  They are waiting to have everything in place, and as a result never move forward.  It’s wise to keep your full-time job while you’re setting up your new business.  It’s also wise to have six months of your overhead covered before you open your business.  It’s also wise that you identify mentors or coaches to help you avoid major pitfalls.

After that, you just need to make the decision and do it or spend the rest of your life reviewing the could of, should of, or would of that held you back.  If you having a tough time making a decision to start your own business, draw to capital “T’s” on two sheets of paper.  On the top of one “T” write down your current job.  On the top of the second “T” write down owning a Staffing and Recruiting Firm.

Pros Of Owning A Business

Written on June 5th, 2017 by in Blog

One of the main reasons someone starts a Staffing and Recruiting business is to reap personal and professional benefits.  With a new business, you have the flexibility to determine your hours, work pace and work environment.  It also gives you the ability to pursue a career based on your interests.  Opening a business also represents a certain type of freedom.

You may feel limited when you are an employee by mismanagement or a limited number of promotions within your company.  While beginning a business can seem daunting, the potential for financial success is there.  Another important fact to consider is that self-employed businesspersons were four times more likely to be millionaires than those in traditional employer-employee roles.  When you own a Staffing and Recruiting Firm, the only person that can limit your growth is yourself.
