The median annual salary for someone in the staffing service industry is $29,000 according to the U.S. Department of Labor and as a business owner, you could make even more. The Department also estimates that the staffing industry will grow faster and add more jobs than just about any other industry over the next decade. If you have always yearned for a career where you can really make a difference in someone s life and are thinking of opening a staffing service business, then we have a book that can assist you in taking those first steps and answer all of your questions along the way. Whether you will be operating out of your home or you are looking to buy or rent office space, this book can help you with a wealth of start-up information, from how to form and name your business to deciding if this will be a joint venture or if you would rather work solo.

A list of potential sectors that your business can operate in will help you decide whether to stick to a specific niche or whether you will hire contractors to work in various fields, along with the benefits of operating in both situations and factors to consider such as local supply and demand, your own career experience, and economic feasibility.
