One thing I have always tried to do with Recruitment Views is to pass on any tips to save you money and this post is one more, which I hope you find useful.
When it comes to setting up your own recruitment company, apart from recruitment software you will also need to buy a Microsoft Office suite or an alternative for opening and reading those cvs, but with a price tag of £329 for the Office Standard Edition, it can put a dent in those set up funds.
Obviously there are ways to get around this, like borrowing a friends disk, downloading an illegal version or even paying for it with your credit card. But the other day I cam across an alternative via my web hosting company www.fasthosts.co.uk, where you can get a legal version of Microsoft Office from £4.99 per month, more details can be found here. OK it is rental but at least you can get up and running before you need to fork out £329, and if you combine that with a 3 months free trial from Microsoft you can spend the savings on some advertising or a coffee machine for the office.
