"We do run into this sometimes, but to be honest, the majority of our clients DO hire the 'first' candidate we present to them.  It has to do with the quality of the information from the client, as well as the quality of the…"

" Decision makers like to have choices. One candidate isn't enough.   Had you brought the new one at the same time as the other ones, they might have hired him.  But now it's a new search.  "

Not Hiring The First Candidate Interviewed

I would love to get various opinions and feedback about this topic: "Not Hiring the First Candidate you Interview"I am currently recruiting a manager level role for company. We had 3 interviews last month, and through those interviews we realized we needed to re-evaluate who we were looking for.

So we decided to look for the next level of candidate.So after an exhausting search I…See More

The Anatomy of the Counter Offer

The subject of the counter offer is a very highly debated topic. If you are in a job search while currently employed and in fact entertain a new offer, it is a safe assumption that your current employer will do what it takes to keep you. And while having two companies fighting over your professional services can feel flattering, it is incumbent on you to fully understand the situation and not just take the highest offer.This article is not written to persuade candidates to not take counter…See More
