My name is Teisha. I have been a member of this group for about a year I believe and I have watched and read the email convos that come through and while some are quite entertaining others are very informative. It appears as though there quite a few, highly knowledgeable people in this group and I would like their advice.
I have been recruiting for about 11 1/2 years and am ready to venture out on my own with a focus in Diversity recruiting. I have worked for large corps a few outsourcing companies and for the past 4 years, I have been contract recruiting/sourcing for various firms, working from my home office.
As for going at it on my own - I have no idea of where to start! I am looking at some of these outsourcing companies that are quite small, however are gaining these accounts and making promises that some of them can not keep and I figured.. I can do that, possibly better!
I am pretty much straight forward with my delivery and not very good at getting attention unless I am face to face with someone. I want to know things like, how do I approach potential clients.. (email campaign, mass mailings, cold calling..etc) .. what is some good verbiage to use to get attention, what should I have in place before reaching out to potential clients..... can't think of anything else, I am sure there is something I am missing, so I would like any and all advise I can get.
Thanks for your help.
