How long does it take to set up your business and actually generate revenue?

Written on July 31st, 2015 by in Blog

It will take you 90-120 days to set up your business if you are working a full-time job.  This will give you time to complete the 24 Lessons in the Start Up Tutor and complete the 80 day Top Producer Tutor training program.  You will be able to generate revenue in approximately 2-3 months (dependent on your niche and segment of the profession that will become your focus). From the time you write your first order, the national average to place someone in a job is 5 weeks.  (If you place very high level (CFO, CEO etc.) it takes much longer. The candidate must then hand in a two week notice, because most of the people we place in full-time jobs are currently working. This brings the time frame to 7 weeks. Most clients pay our fees in 30 days which brings you to nine weeks.

How do you select a niche?

Written on July 31st, 2015 by in Blog

When selecting your niche you want to select a niche:

  1. Where there is high demand and low supply of top talent.
  2. That is “hot” in your market.
  3.  That is growing not shrinking. Some examples:  IT, Engineering, Oil & Gas, Biotech, Accounting & Finance or Medical (does require credentialing which is expensive).
  4. Where you can develop 30 accounts (10 key accounts, 20
  5. Where you can determine the five titles that will generate the highest revenues for your business.
  6. That allows you to create a blended business doing “contract as well as direct” placements.

Lesson 17 in our Start Up Tutor Program is dedicated to walking you step-by-step through how to select the most lucrative niche.  If you invest in our program, I will also answer any questions and help guide you toward the business model, segments of the profession and niches that are most lucrative.

Benefits and Liabilities of a Business Partner

Written on February 24th, 2014 by in Blog

I often get calls from individuals who are planning on starting a recruiting firm along with a partner. This article addresses these folks directly and outlines the pros and cons of starting a firm in this fashion.

There are many possible benefits, but also many possible liabilities when you enter a business partnership.  It is important that the partnership agreement protect both parties in case the partnership does not work out successfully.

Many partnership agreements assign 49% of stock to each partner with 2% of stock outstanding.  If one person wants out of the partnership, the remaining partner then receives the outstanding 2% of stock, providing them with majority ownership.  This is extremely important if the original partner sells their stock to someone who is not on the same page as the original two owners.

What Experience Works Out Best When Starting a Recruiting/Staffing Firm?

Written on February 17th, 2014 by in Blog

I often get asked the question- “What experience is necessary before starting out in the staffing and recruiting profession?”

The truth is there is no specific experience needed to enter the Staffing and Recruiting Profession. It is important to realize; however, that this is a sales profession.  The success of any new business is based on the ability to generate sales.  This sale is more challenging because there are people on both sides of the sale.

There are great benefits; however, because you will never run out of inventory of either prospective clients or candidates you can represent.  I’ve noticed many individuals who enter this profession come from the Hospitality, Retail, Insurance, Real Estate, Car Rental and other Sales Professions.  I’ve also seen individuals from all walks of life do extremely well.  Success depends greatly on the attitude, tenacity, focus, knowledge and dedication of each individual.  No matter what the experience, if you learn the placement process, how to overcome all objections and focus on a high margin or profit niche, your chance for success greatly improves.

Is There Too Much Competition in the Staffing or Recruiting Business Now?

Written on February 10th, 2014 by in Blog

The concern of many individuals contemplating the Staffing and Recruiting Profession is that there is too much competition. There are thousands of recruiters worldwide, but most recruiters are specialists in a certain industry or niche which greatly limits your competition.

Most Staffing and Recruiting firms only fill one out of seven job orders, contracts or temp assignments they write, due to a lack of identifying the talent their clients will hire.  This one statistic proves there is a great need for recruiters who can identify talent.
