We leverage technology and the resources, experience, education, talents and motivation of our member consultants to increase their revenues and/or decrease their costs, provide them with the tools and resources they need to continuously improve their skill set to provide exceptional quality, service and value to our customers.
Note to Recruiters/Hiring Managers for End Clients
Recruiters/Hiring Managers working directly with end clients of Oracle Application and/or Technology products and services and purchase the services of our highly experienced and talented Oracle Professionals at wholesale prices.
Purchase Services at Wholesale Rates
We markup our consultants rates 13% for contracts executed directly with an end client. We have to pay 8% to FYI Resources, which is our employer of record and provides all payroll and billing related services. The OIC LLC earns 5% for providing placement services. You will know exactly what we pay our Oracle Contingent Employees.
Note to Recruiters
I decided to send you exactly the same information that I send to Oracle Professionals looking for Contract work. I did this because I wanted you to see my requirements. I absolutely won’t place bodies. I will provide you with highly experienced and talented Oracle Professionals with cover letters and resumes that will help you increase success rate in placing Oracle Professionals.
I markup our consultants’ rates 8% to cover the costs of TFI’s fees to fund the payroll and provide all payroll and billing related services.
Compensation for You
You and I will equally share the markup to the end client. Because we operate as a virtual Oracle Consulting Firm, our overhead is very low. This enables us to pay our consultants a very competitive rate, enable you, the recruiter to earn your fair share and still offer our highly talented and experienced Oracle Professionals to our customers at very competitive rates.
I am also open to other suggestions to make this work.

Help Us Help Others
Please give us an opportunity to show you what we can do and help us help others at the same time. A significant number of Oracle Professionals are looking for work and I would like to have an opportunity to place some of these consultants.
Oracle Contractor Placement Services (OCPS)
This program is consistent with our Mission Statement. We leverage technology including Social Networking sites such as Ning.Com and LinkedIn.Com and the resources, experience, talents and motivation of Recruiters to effectively market and sell the services of our member consultants.
I am currently working with several LinkedIn connections to develop a strategy and plan that we can execute to place some of you who are looking for Oracle Contract opportunities. Obviously, we can’t guarantee you that we will place you, but we have every incentive to be successful.
Requirements of Contractor
I don’t have time to personally work with every Oracle Professional looking for work as an Oracle Contractor. Moreover, I want to build a Team of highly experienced and talented Oracle Professionals. Therefore, I will work with Oracle Professionals who meet the following requirements.
All Oracle Professionals that we place on Oracle Projects will work as W-2 Contractors through TFI Resources, which is our employer of record and provides all payroll and billing related services. TFI pays all consultants weekly via a direct deposit. Moreover, you will have an opportunity to purchase Health Insurance Plans at group rates.
Good Communication Skills
I will only work with individuals who have good written and oral communication skills. I will review all cover letters and resumes. I will use these documents to assess your written communication skills. I may also give you a call to assess your oral communication skills.
You need to prepare a cover letter that summarizes your areas of expertise, experience and interests. There are plenty of resources on the internet. If you cover letter doesn’t enable me to effectively market and sell your services, I can represent you. The items in your cover letter should tie back to your resume.
I review hundreds of resumes and most of them are nothing more than a collection of key words. After I review the review, I usually don’t have a clue what type of work the candidate really wants. You need to target specific types of activities.
Again, I don’t provide resume writing advice, but there are resources on the internet that you can use.
