Question Use Lawyer Or Agent To Post Jobs?

I'm researching the talent pool in my industry, media and advertising, with an eye towards starting an agency. I'd like to place ads for project-based or contract positions on job boards. For several reasons, I'd like to postpone forming a business entity. Is it possible to have a business attorney post these on my behalf? Or does something like a business agent exist for this and related purposes, some entity whose function it is to act as an intermediary or representative? Thanks.

Interesting scenario. Welcome to the forum, I'm happy you found us and hope we can help you along.

By nature your circumstances described seem confusing. Are you actually planning on hiring anyone for these job ads you plan on placing?

What comes to mind ... maybe discuss your needs with a market research company who may be able to complete primary and secondary research for your potential business.

Thanks, Logan, useful suggestion. I'm not sure though that typical market research would be better than the assessment I can make - whether the talent I'd be hiring matches the local market for projects.

I agree, it may not. My suggestion wasn't necessarily from a capability standpoint versus using the market research company as a means to accomplish your goals without establishing a company. It's not an easy question, really ... anytime you do business - even as an individual without establishing a separate entity - you are in business. For example, if I go setup a lemonade stand out on the street corner ... then essentially I am Doing Business As (DBA) "Chris Logan" (myself). What's the hesitation with setting up a business, maybe a simple sole proprietorship could be used for your initial phases then transfer to a llc, corporation (whatever) down the road. Just ideas, let us know how it goes.
