American Recruiters builds relationships with companies in many industries to provide clients with a focused list of potential jobs.

Why You May Want To Start an American Recruiters Franchise

Franchisees with American Recruiters don't necessarily need experience in the staffing industry, as anyone is welcome to apply for an American Recruiters franchise. However, franchisees should exhibit the same core values as American Recruiters. These values include respect, integrity, teamwork, quality professionalism, personal accountability, consistency, and a strong work ethic.

American Recruiters franchisees also typically need to have strong organizational skills. Franchisees with American Recruiters will meet and communicate with numerous clients and companies. If franchisees cannot keep information organized, they may have difficulty succeeding in their American Recruiters location.

What Might Make an American Recruiters Franchise a Good Choice?

Instead of listing jobs in every industry, American Recruiters focuses on selecting specific industries looking for employees. These industries may include:

  • Acute Care

  • Long Term Care

  • Pharmacy

  • Foodservice

  • Industrial

  • Information Technology

  • Business Administration

American Recruiters franchisees may benefit from exclusive territories, which make it so a franchise cannot be impeded upon by another American Recruiters franchise. Franchisees will have access to the full database of job seekers and open positions so that franchisees can jump right into the thick of things from day one of their franchise opening. 

To be part of the American Recruiters team, you should make sure you're financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. In addition, you should prepare yourself for ongoing fees that will include advertising, royalty, and potential renewal fees. Franchisees will also need to meet the company's set net worth and liquid capital requirements.

As you decide if opening an American Recruiters franchise is the right move for you, make sure you take time to explore the opportunity.
