Recruiting: Specialists vs. Generalists
When working with a staffing agency to find help for your estate, experience counts. Many families who are interested in hiring staff for their households are "first time buyers" and have never worked with a domestic staffing agency before; so making mistakes is easy if you are doing business with inexperienced agencies.
Most staffing agencies are generalists, which means they try to be all things to all people (Jack of all trades). If you were going to hire someone to fix your Ferrari, do you want someone who specializes in repairing Ferraris? Of course. Well, if you want to hire a personal assistant, estate manager or executive assistant, the same principal should apply -- hire a specialist; and that's where The Celebrity Personal Assistant Network comes in.
Further, if you take the time to visit a number of domestic staffing agency websites, something very obvious is going to stand out: The recruiters who work there don't have a bio featured on the website (and for a very good reason). Most recruiters and staffing professionals don't have any training (or a degree) in the field for which they are recruiting. In other words, they have never done the job for which they are recruiting. It's a shocker. Most recruiters are posing as professionals when they have zero first-hand experience -- nor do they have any HR training.
Our founder, Brian Daniel, is a seasoned professional and subject matter expert. He has worked for Hollywood stars, millionaires, billionaires, American aristocracy and even royal families. He has first-hand experience in the roles for which he places, and he's a specialist. No other headhunter in the domestic staffing place can make that claim.
