"I need some advice. What do agencies use for a service fee when placing high $ professionals, like doctors and others? % or a flat fee?"

Recruiter Certification

Posted on April 15, 2013 at 3:09pm 6 Comments

I was wondering if any professional recruiters here are nationally certified or otherwise credentialed? Is there value to getting something like CPC through NAPS, or similar? Is it worth it even for someone with a masters in business administration and experience with program development and management and all aspects of staffing? Just curious.

Independent Contractor

Posted on April 12, 2013 at 12:30pm 7 Comments

I was wondering how others deal with a client who is looking to hire an independent contractor and pay them a salary of 60% of all proceeds generated by that position. Is it best to charge them a one-time service fee based on an "average" expected first year's salary or to charge them on a monthly basis for the first year?

Please advise. Love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this one. I see more and more employers going for ind. contractor positions.
