Entrepreneurial Business

We don’t do this because it’s easy, we do this because we thought it would be easy.

Every one of us who has started a business started with an idea, a lot of excitement and had the expectation it was going to be easy.  As that idea comes to fruition, we realize how much work it is and a lot of other emotions come into play including some frustration in finding the right people with the right attitude that want to be part of our idea and vision.  We can’t make everything about entrepreneurship easy, but we can help find the right people that will keep the excitement going.

Working in startup recruiting, we help find individuals that thrive in a fast paced environment where things my be done in a less traditional fashion. An entrepreneurial business is unique in its own right.  Employees are often overhead until they can become productive.  Candidates who understand this and can learn quickly from their new leader (who may be ‘doing things different’), will have a higher chance of succeeding in their new roles. We’ve worked with several entrepreneurial businesses to help identify the right candidates, and integrate them into your business.

Entrepreneurs don’t have time to worry about startup recruiting while you’re growing your business. Interviewing and onboarding, yes, but not always recruiting. We’ll take the recruiting piece off your plate while you focus on your business. Our process will help sort out those who want to work to help grow something and not simply be out for the next hottest name in business.

Your schedule is busy enough without having to source candidates too.  If you want a broader picture of the potential candidate base, you can interview candidates that we’ve sourced for you.  You’ll still control the process, but it will be from a limited, prequalified selection that simplifies your role in startup recruiting.

Some candidates are wowed by the business owner and their energy, company philosophy, but aren’t a good fit for long term growth.  Third party review can help determine when the fit is right on both sides. Bandwagon recruiting doesn’t always translate to successful hires, and our team can help provide an objective perspective.

“RFT Search Group was instrumental in the early days of my business.  They found the people I needed to get my idea through the development phase and then get it to market.  Once we were ready, they found my HR Director and a Recruiter.  Even knowing they were replacing themselves they provided quality service and found outstanding HR leaders for us.” – Mike Tech Entrepreneur
