Why would they have to pay to have an opportunity? Seems like an up hill battle to say the least. What's the rub? what's in it for them?
Do not work for that company
LOL. You all made me chuckle. I was a bit surprised to hear the shock in your writing. I must admit as a Recruiter my posting does sound like a joke.
First, let me say I am thrlled to see so many responding to this post. And yes this is a TRUE recruiting request. And sorry I was late in responding. Was out meeting with clients all day.
Seriously, though the job posting is what Real Estate Recruiters do everyday. Some Recruiters get paid a salary, others are bonused on hires while others are bonused (paid) only on production and some have a combination package. They do not get paid like a traditional recruiter (as you and I know them) typically.
Real Estate Recruiters and Real Estate Hiring Managers seek people who are willing to work 100% commission, pay desk fees, and oh the new hire has to mostly find their own leads or if experienced bring leads with them, cultivate the leads and close them before they get paid. They then "splt" their income with up to FOUR participating parties. In most cases when a person is just getting started it can take 3-6 months on average to get a pay check (especially these days).
WIIFT is they get to be their own boss, have flexible hours, have no earnings cap, get training and support in the real estate industry, build a business they can resell later and if they are good enough get repeat business. They meet people who become life long friends and customers. They get to write off most of their expenses and take as much or as little vacation time as they want. They never have to miss another social or special event if they don't want to and if they are sick they just stay home in the bed until they are ready to work again. They can be as successful or as lazy as they want to be.
So it was a serious question for an industry that needs to hire more agents.
I am speaking this week (Thursday) to a group of Real Estate OWNERS, BROKERS and RECRUITERS and could use your help on the topic. I will post it so you can respond. ANY feedback, good, bad, ugly, helpful, thoughtful, etc would be greatly appreciated. Stay tuned for the question.
