As you may know, I have a regular column in that paper called “Ask a Recruiter” where readers send in their questions for me. We received a question recently from a small business owner who was trying to decide whether it would be worth it for him/her to “bite the bullet” and hire a recruiter.
This query actually brings up a very good point: when it is worth it to bring in external expertise or administrative support? To answer this question, we have to first address another question – how much is our own time worth?
When the value of our time and energy outweighs the investment cost of outsourcing services – that’s the “bite the bullet” moment.
In my experience, many business professionals are so busy, they don’t have time to take a step back, and actually assess what their own time is worth. Perhaps this week, should be the week, when we all set aside time to calculate our worth!
