"I think that Amy and Sandra have summed it up really well, communicate but also know when to fish or cut bait.  "

Suzanne Levison replied to Mike's discussion 'Issue with candidate - would like opinions.'
"I agree, Ralph. Too, if a candidate is just not ready, you must move on, whether you know his/he reasons or not. Sometimes you just can't get to the bottom of it. Although, that doesn't mean that candidate isn't viable at another time…"

"Every candidate may be bsing you.  Play it out and find other candidates.  There will come a point where you just have to take the opportunities away from her.  "

Linda Ferrante LoCicero replied to Mike's discussion 'Issue with candidate - would like opinions.'
"Absolutely try to find out what her issue is, and incorporate the take away as well. If it's too easy to take away from her, she's not the right candidate. One word of caution, however.  Please do NOT use the 'we have other…"

"Time to fish or cut bait.  Your objective is to get her in front of your client if she is serious.  I would handle it this way. Me:  Hi Judy, you mentioned that you might have to take a sick day in order to go for interview.  Let…"

Mike Avillion replied to Mike's discussion 'Issue with candidate - would like opinions.'
"I think it all depends on answering the following questions: 1) How far in advance are the client(s) looking to fly her in? 2) How much time is involved?  Overnight trip? 3) Scope of her current role?  How integral is it for her to be…"

Tom Byrne replied to Mike's discussion 'Issue with candidate - would like opinions.'
"Mike although she may be a great candidate on paper unless she is truly motivated to make a move (and for the right reasons) your best bet is to do a take away like Amy mentioned. Let her know that you cannot spend anymore time with her on this…"

Paul S. Gumbinner replied to Mike's discussion 'Issue with candidate - would like opinions.'
"There are many candidates who want to leave their jobs but are very loyal to their current employer.  They are conscientious and involved with their current jobs.  So she may truly be in a self-imposed conflict.   Is she BSing…"

Cathy Mannis replied to Mike's discussion 'Issue with candidate - would like opinions.'
"I would ask your candidate if she can commit to a certain interview date and, if she is at all hesitant, let her know that there are other candidates in the pipeline that will then proceed to move forward in the process.  You are basically…"
