Starting a Landscape Maintenance Business

Starting a landscape maintenance business is a great way to go – not only will you get to be your own boss, you also have the opportunity to make some good money. You will need an office, you will need to choose a neighbourhood to work in and you will also need to buy equipment and hire the right people. There are two ways you can go about doing these things; if you have a lot of money in the bank you can use it to capitalize your new business, but unfortunately this is not the case for most people. The other way to go is to buy into a franchise.

A franchise is an already established business and when you sign up for it you get everything you need to start your landscape business. They will give you their brand, they will give you all the equipment that you need, they will provide you with employees and you will also get the training that you need to be successful in your business. In return, you will give them a certain percentage of your business every month until you have paid off your debt to the franchise company. Although some people worry that if you start a landscape business this way you don’t get to develop your own brand and you don’t take home all the profits, it is a great way for you to start a business when you don’t have much money.

When you sign up for a franchise you have to work hard. It is up to you to find as many customers as you can service, and you have to make sure that each of them is happy enough to engage your services every time they need their lawns taken care of. You have to motivate your employees so that they can deliver the best possible lawn care and do it with professionalism and courtesy. Remember. Even when you don’t make money you have to pay the franchise company, which means that if you don’t have enough money at the end of the month you will have to dip into your own finances to meet your obligations.

One of the best landscape business franchise companies is Pro Lawn Care. They have been in the landscaping business for more than 15 years and in that time they have established a very successful franchise.

Mechanical Engineer Jobs

If you are new to Bristol and are looking for a mechanical engineering job you should post your CV on a recruitment website. These are websites that coordinate with employers so that when job openings come up they can list them. They are paid by both parties – the employers pay them to list and you will also pay them if they help you get a job. The amount that you pay them depends on what kind of arrangement they have in place. The usual practice is to help you get a job and then take a percentage of your first salary. There are some that take payment for longer periods, but you should avoid these – it is better to pay them off at once and be done with them.

These websites do more than help you find potential employers. The best ones also help you prepare for interviews by giving you as much information as possible before every interview. They will tell you what the employer does, what will be expected of you in case you should get the job and even what kind of work environment and culture you can expect to find. You may pay a bit more for these additional services but it is worth it. On your part, you should use the material that they give you, but also do additional research of your own. Find out as much as you can about the company and what your role in it will be. Read employee reviews – there are many companies that have set up web pages for employees to write what they think about their jobs and employers.

You want to be able to give a good impression on your interview, so make sure that you dress professionally. Ladies should make sure that they wear a decent looking suit – look nice but be careful about low cut blouses or very short skirts. Find out the location of the interview well in advance so that you get there with ease, and make sure that you get there at least 30 minutes ahead of the scheduled interview. Be polite to everyone – no one wants to hire someone who comes off as rude.

One good website to post your CV is Polytech Personnel. They have helped many mechanical engineers get jobs over the years and whatever your specialty you can be sure that before long they will have jobs lined up for you.
