How to be an Independent Recruiter and Still Eat. RecruitingLive w/ Holly Mallowes


I am sure we have all fantasized about firing the company we work for, throwing away the suits, and becoming an independent recruiter. I mean, that way, you can work at home, you can have more work/life balance and keep more of the money. For corporate recruiters, the dream includes finally making money off of the people you place.

Before you jump ship, there are some things you have to keep in mind. Sure you have the recruiting expertise down. But independent recruiters also need a:

  • Applicant Tracking System
  • Accountant
  • Business Bank Account
  • Company Name

And don’t forget the two most important things, money and clients.

I don’t know how she did it but our guest this week was an independent recruiter for over 7 years. Before you make the leap, join us to learn how she marketed herself, stayed current in the market, nailed (almost) every interview, and kept at least 2 full-time contracts at a time among other gems. She is also going to discuss how to find work, get the job and make an impact immediately.
