Executive Search is an inherently entrepreneurial business. Recruiters who hustle find success. That’s one reason why so many recruiters eventually decide to start their own firms.
Of course, there’s more to it than that. Retained search is an interesting business. You get to work with senior executives at exciting companies and help them solve challenging problems.
If you’re already working in the recruiting industry, branching out on your own amounts to seizing control of your own future. Yet, starting a search firm can be a huge leap. And if you—like many recruiters—are thinking about taking that leap right now, you might not know where exactly to start.
