Ok, before you find people (candidates) you have to have a company to place them in. Not just a staffing agency but a company for these qualified people. Quite honestly, if you were to try and "sell" candidates to an agency there has to be a need for those people. We wouldn`t just "buy people" from you in hopes for future work. There`s resumes all over the web that we can resource. My company has a very large database of "qualified people". So, you`d need to find out what types of candidates these agencies need and what companies they are looking to place said candidates in. Agencies do not disclose that information so that they do not lose that job (order) to a different agency. Just go to Monster.com or any sites that post job openings. You`ll see genaric postings by agencies just stating what the job entails, not where that actual job is. This is for their protection from someone such as myself. If I look up job postings and see a company name, I know they are looking and I will contact them myself and try to get them to use my agency as well. At that point, I don`t care how many agencies are in the mix. I care about getting the order and sending in the perfect candidate first. Now, with that said, agencies post their contact info. for each job. So, you could try and find people that would fit the order and try to offer them up at a percentage to that agency. You may find it easier to locate listings by the companies themselves (the one`s that don`t use agencies) and submit them at a lower rate then an agency would. They may bite harder if they are looking for a direct hire person at a rate of 10% to you, then 20% to me. Contract wise, (where the agency basically picks up the tab) I don`t think you`d have a strong market place and you would have to pay for that employee`s benifits.
Now, with hiring someone at $6-7/hr to help you find and qualify potential candidates.....our recruiters get a similar pay structure to mine. They get a smaller salary, the benifits and a commision as well, their structure is a little different but all in all the same.
Your best bet is to research how a staffing agency works, the in`s & outs you may say, and start up your own. The problems you may face. There are a ton of agencies out there. Some, like mine, are speciality niche types (only focus on one asbect of business), other`s work on any project they can get their hands on. The good thing about a staffing agency is that most companies are starting to realize that it`s cheaper in the long run to hire contract employees for the project they currently have over direct (perminant) hires. Hiring a contract employee, they only have to pay an hourly rate and when the works done so is that contracted employee. Then, the process starts over, and we find that candidate another position at another business.
Circle of life you may say.
Now, I`m not trying to discourage you from doing this but, you should know what your up against.
