If you have done your job as a recruiter, and found out about where the candidate is in their job-search process  what is motivating them, and have discussed the possibility of counter-offers (advising against accepting them), then this shouldn't be a surprise/problem.

Totally agree with Keith.  It should have been part of the recruiting process.  If it was, and the candidate kept it from you, then it's a good thing they didn't get hired by your client!  Who knows what else they would have conveniently left out?

Well, what we had disovered is, In most cases, current companies of the candidates, make a point that they put their feet on the candidates weakness. And most of the time its the Vitamin M (money), Current companies of the candidates, give them the required hikes and then, ask the candidate to stay back....And then the candidate who has made his mind to change with our cllient then starts thinking that, if he is getting the same hike in the same company, then why to change and again show your performance and all. He gets emotional attachment with the organisation. And then at last he take a step back.

Thanks, Linda.

A Rahul: Hmmm. If you have discussed counter-offers with the candidate, and s/he has agreed not to accept one, and they do anyway- then your client is better off without them.
