Growing Demands of Executive Home Based Recruiters

By: Stephen_Munson

Recruiting is ranked Top #5 professions for 2009 and beyond. If you have common sense and a desire to do what's right for the candidate and your client you'll find recruiting to be rewarding financially and emotionally. There is no higher reward then to successfully help your candidate into a new career. Most importantly you can control your schedule and live a balanced life. Freedom and flexibility seem to be a huge focus on today’s society. Lets face it this is one of the only “work-from-home” opportunities that is a true professional environment, not the typical MLM, cold-calling, or sales scheme.
Contingency fee Recruiters work on commission. Recruiters call this it a placement fee and companies pay upward of $25,000 for qualified candidates. The typical fee is 20% of the annual salary. Launching your career as a Recruiter typically takes 3 weeks to two months. Depending on your chosen industry, and the smart recruiters have more than one chosen industry. It is both possible and likely that you can make a placement in your first week or two. Keep in mind the candidate will then give two weeks notice, and it may take another two weeks to receive your fee from the client after your candidate starts work. By the time you receive your first commission you should have a full pipeline and the peace of mind that comes from seeing your paychecks line up in a row from the additional placements you’re making!
I strongly recommend you invest in a company that provides the following: constant job orders in various industries, support, training, a developed back office, a company more than 5 years old, a commission plan that gives the recruiter more than 30% of the placement fee, and offers a opportunity for growth and to bring in contracts with hiring companies. Specific training will polish your presentation and give you a professional advantage, not to mention great confidence.

Knowing how to approach candidates who are happily employed and knowing exactly what to say will set you apart from the 85% of recruiters who rely solely on job board resumes. Your compensation will reflect the difference as well. The training & support from the company that you choose to work for is a must. This is a $95 billion a year industry so having your foot in the door with a solid company makes the different.
If you have a telephone, a computer (with internet access), knowledge of an industry, and a company with the above mentioned tools, you can be very successful working at home as an Executive Recruiter. Why not start today? The recruiting industry is on track to grow 50% to 70% by 2014. There is room for you to be both successful and very happy!
