Issue No. 365






There are a lot of recruiters out there who say they know the copier business. But nobody knows it like Copier Careers.

For more than 25 years, Copier Careers has dedicated itself exclusively to helping independent copier dealerships find the experienced staff they need to stay ahead of the curve. When color was introduced, Copier Careers was there. When analog gave way to digital, it was there. When standalone machines were replaced by networked devices, it was there. When "pushing boxes" was replaced with solution sales, it was there. When new software was introduced into the back office, it was there. While other recruiters have come and gone, Copier Careers has stayed the course. The company is in it for the long haul, just like you.

Copier Careers has posted three of its four 2013 Salary Surveys (Tech, Sales, Service and Operations Management) completed by 6,937 industry professionals. They can be found at:

Look for the 2013 Sales Representative Salary Survey in December.

More than Resumes, Candidates®
