5 Tips For Starting A Successful Recruiting Agency

Want to start your own recruiting agency? Here are 5 tips you should know.

We've interviewed thousands of successful founders at Starter Story and asked what advice they would give to entrepreneurs who are just getting started.

Here's the best advice we discovered for starting a recruiting agency:

#1: Sharon Koifman, founder of DistantJob:

We chatted with with Sharon, founder of DistantJob ($290K/month). In our interview, Sharon says:

I wish I would have some glorious story about going in and making my point so eloquently to people with big bucks, that they backed me on the spot with loads of cash. But that wasn’t the case.

Additionally:

You need to make a product that is exciting to talk about! Something that you feel makes a difference in the world. I honestly don’t understand how some people can just sell a commodity where the sales process is really just about the relationship and not really about the product.

Further:

They say only 1 out of 10 entrepreneurs succeeds in their venture, what they don’t talk about much is that a second-time entrepreneur has almost a 50% chance of succeeding. Don’t be shy about failing. This goes for all your experiments also, the best ideas DO come from failure.
