Fortune Hunters Help Wanted: Profits in the People Business

Fortune Hunters Help Wanted: Profits in the People Business

This Fortune Hunters episode is all about employment. With dreary job loss numbers all over the news, you’d have to be crazy to start a new employment agency in this industry, right? But the staffing and recruitment industry is ploughing full steam ahead. In 2008 alone, this industry generated over $5.6 billion and employed millions of Canadians. One of the biggest reasons for this industry’s success is the use of temporary employees. While the economy as a whole may be losing full-time jobs, temp positions have risen over 43 per cent in the last decade. Take a close look at the resume of Meighen Nehme — just back from maternity leave, she's trying to expand her new recruitment agency.
