Can My Company be Set up as a Non-Profit?

Written on May 31st, 2017 by in Blog

You could make the decision to set up your company as a non-profit, but why would you do that?  I’ve always said the individuals in our Profession are “social workers who like money.”  We do want to help people and make a difference but realize we need to also take care of ourselves and the people we love.

My advice would be to incorporate, become an extremely profitable business and then donate to the non-profit causes you support.  The more you make, the more you can donate.

If done right, you can build a business that can provide you with the lifestyle you deserve to live, while allowing you to help others.

It is very difficult to find top talent in today’s competitive Job Market.  This is the BEST market for the Staffing and Recruiting Profession.  If it was EASY to find candidates, no one would need our services.

This candidate-driven market is going to exist for many years due to the retiring baby boomers, global competition for top talent, the trend toward a flexible workforce and the ever-changing demands of technology.

There has never been a better time in History to enter the Staffing and Recruiting Profession and the prediction for the future is continual growth.

Is Staffing and Recruiting HR?

Written on May 2nd, 2017 by in Blog

This is a common misconception.  Individuals in the Staffing and Recruiting must learn and adhere to employment laws and most HR Departments employ a Recruiter or Talent Acquisition Professional.  However, Recruiting is a Sales Profession not Human Resource.

You will sell candidates to hiring authorities and you will sell your services to the clients who will utilize your services.   You have people on both sides of the sales, which can be extremely challenging.  One of both parties can change their mind, priorities, timing or even decide to put a job on hold or decide not to change jobs.  You must learn to overcome objections, listen more than you talk and position yourself as the solution to problems.

How many people do I need to hire?

Written on April 17th, 2017 by in Blog

The answer to this question depends 100% on your experience and budget.  If you have recruiting experience and are confident that you can generate job orders, contracts and assignments, it would be wise to hire individuals who could help you recruit talent.

If you have a large budget, it might also be wise to hire if you first take the time to develop processes, systems and complete your training, so you can train your team.  You don’t want to overextend yourself and limiting your initial overhead can give your time to establish a profitable business.

If you have a limited budget, begin your business from home,  learn the profession and place some candidates in jobs before you hire.  When you have generated too many job orders, contracts or assignments to cover, that is a great time to hire.
