When starting up a staffing firm, it’s hard to know what you don’t know.
Starting a new business is always exciting. New staffing firm owners are motivated by their desire to help others, both candidates and companies, and being well-rewarded for their efforts at making effective placements by leveraging their self-identified skills and industry knowledge.
But as the saying goes, “the job ain’t over
until the paperwork is done”. Many staffing firm start- ups might never have gotten off the ground if, before getting started, they had known all the risks and operational requirements of running such a business. As they soon learn, the administrative realities of the staffing business can be daunting, dampening even the most vibrant entrepreneurial spirit.
Take David Machlis of Intercast Staffing. When he launched his agency focusing exclusively on Cisco Certified Resources, he knew little about the business of actually running a staffing firm. He did not even know, for instance, that he was responsible for paying the contractors he placed.
