Q: I am working on establishing a job placement business, but I need to know what the industry typically charges for fees and commissions. I tried to call other agencies to get some information but they've refused to talk to me. Please help. --Lynn Brown, Los Angeles * A: A job placement agency typically charges its clients a fee that corresponds to between 25% and 35% of the annual salary of the employee that it has placed.
