Christian >> Does anybody here pay finder's fees to associates, >> aquaintances, friends for jobs they got for you? And if so >> what is a common percentage to be used? In the past it has largely depended on the effort that the person has gone to to find me the job, or the likelihood that they will find me more jobs and we will build an ongoing relationship. I have not paid many finder's fees, but when I have it has been 10% of the gross. This figure was based on the fact that it made it fairly attractive to the finder to repeat the operation, and did not mean that I had to increase the quote astronomically. This was not a particularly scientific approach, so others' experiences may be of more use to you. > If anybody should be paying it's the company that hired you. I would respectfully disagree with this. I may build the finder's fee into the quote if I'm going to pay one, but in my opinion the responsibility would lie with me.
