Basic Requirements to start a HR consultancy

I have gone through some of the comments and found some of the query like  i am a MBA in Hr  ,or I have experience in so and so …. can i start a Hr consultancy? My answer is yes you can . Anything is possible if you make up your mind and its well said that “Jahan chah hai waah Raah hai”  . See if you are planning to sell your skills as a service provider,  the first thing you need to know is how it works and gain the expertise on it. I have mentioned some of the points based on my experience  hope it helps you

The important requirements  to start a HR consultancy  are:-

1)   Complete knowledge of recruitment process.

2)   Ready for hard work and long working hours.

3)   Presentable and Good communication skills.

4)   Basic accounting knowledge.

5)   How to convert clients?

Complete knowledge of Recruitment Process

One should know the basics of recruitment process and should be aware of the current trends in recruitment process as it will be an advantage because here you will be selling your this skill in a form of product or service.

Ready for hard work and long working hour

We all know that hard work is the key to success. And when you start something new you need to give it more time to make it successful. Same implies here as you need to be ready for long working hours as recruitment takes time.

Presentable and Good communication skills

One should be presentable and should have very good communication skills as he has to sell the recruitment skills to clients in terms of service. So you need to make them believe that you have that skill which they are looking into their recruiting partner and for this good communication are required to convince them with good presentation.

Basic accounting knowledge

One should have basic accounting knowledge because you need to raise the invoices regularly for clearance of bills, once your candidate joins the organizations.

How to convert clients?

Client conversion is “an art of convincing“. When you become an expert in convincing you will get more clients. Here you have to sell your services and you have to convince that as a service provider that you are perfect to fulfill their requirements. There are a lot of ways by which you can convert clients which include regular meetings with clients, being active on social networking websites, posting your ads on professional networking websites.

If you don’t have these skills don’t worry. You can develop with your hard work and dedication over time. Remember ‘Rome was not built in a day. So be positive.
