Why Candidates Decline Job Offers (And What To Do About It)

Every recruiter has had, or will have, the experience of a candidate declining a job offer, contrary to everything the candidate has said or done up until that point. 

This is a very expensive failure of your recruitment process because at the time of the offer you have completed around 95% of the necessary…

When is it right to accept a counter offer?

Having recently read a number of blogs on this subject I feel compelled to write this as I believe most articles are very one sided in their viewpoint. Most are focused on outlining to candidates the many reasons why, when they resign, they should not be tempted to stay by a counter offer. I don’t think I have read anything explaining the reasons why you SHOULD accept a counter offer but here’s the thing - there are times and there are circumstances when…

The Counteroffer: Why and How to Avoid This Losing Proposition

When an employee informs their supervisors of their resignation, they are sometimes confronted by what is known as a counteroffer - an employer’s “rebuttal” to the resignation in the form of a proposed salary increase or other perceived benefits

Countering the Counter Offer

I'm gonna make you a (counter) offer you can't refuse...

A friend approached me recently asking whether or not he should accept a considerable counter-offer from his employer following his recent resignation.

Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

All stoked up about that job offer? The details in hand, now is decision time. Go down the list – job scope and title, your new colleagues, company stability and prestige, corner office, compensation and benefits, check that list and yep everything is in place so time to accept that offer. Now the hard part, telling your current boss who you know will be crest fallen because after all they love you in your current job but just aren’t paying you enough money.
