The Best Way to Resign ...And Deal With a Counteroffer!

You’ve done it. You’ve landed yourself a great offer at an exciting new company that will challenge and inspire you to achieve greatness. You’ve deliberated the pros and cons of a new career choice, and know you’re heading to greener pastures. The details…

Don't you hate it when a candidate turns down an offer 1 week before their start date?

The dreaded decline of the offer usually comes before accepting the offer, oh no, not on this one. Relocation assistance approved and sign on bonus all in place, even 3 weeks paid in a hotel to help transition.  As a recruiter you have already visualized the check coming in the mail and your off on to your next biggest and most important search.  

Although, instead of being happy and feeling good about all the hard work you did that goes into recruiting the hard-to-fill unicorn all…

The Gap: What Really Happens Between The Offer and The Acceptance

Do you remember those weeks before you got hired at your current job? Do you remember being excited by the prospect of finding a position that interested you and, despite knowing you were qualified for it, the nervousness of not knowing if you would be selected for an interview?

What about the few…

Will 2014 Be a Banner Year?

          Business is quite robust so far in 2014.  Record-level business for me, even as a 25-year recruiter, tripling all of last year's revenues within the first 60 days.  I was informed that I have a new offer coming out today, for a candidate I have known and had in my network for at least a decade, finally getting a chance to place him, and he is very excited.  Another candidate for another position also successfully submitted his resignation today, and set his start…

Mobile salary negotiation, now more is possible

Mobile salary negotiation allows employers, recruiters and employees to do things they could not do before. They can now capture the value that is inevitably left on the table after every negotiation. 

There are two reasons value is inevitably left on the table:

  1. Information is not shared freely out of fear of being taken advantage…

Captain Obvious and the Lowball Offer

As a recruiter, I’ve had to learn to adapt to many different personalities. (Haven’t we all?) This applies to both candidates and hiring managers alike. When it comes time to make an offer, you’d better know the personalities on both sides very well if you want to make the deal.

There are candidates that can’t stand negotiating; they hate it as much as they usually hate…

Yes, No, and Goodbye

What a rough few weeks. You've probably heard a couple of things about me lately – I lost a friend / colleague, and I changed jobs. After nearly two years as a corporate recruiter for Zones, responsible for just about every department outside of sales, I left. Coming on the heels of a death in our department, it was especially hard to say goodbye.

The past month has been full of difficult conversations. I was not actively looking for a new role. Some might even call me a passive…

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

Many misinformed professionals have no hesitation in considering a counteroffer.  In fact, many will reason that a…

What is it with the Low-Ball offer? And What are the Risks?

We’ve all had this happen to us. Just when the process is purring along and our client has made their final candidate selection they go pull the “low-ball” offer! Despite ongoing consultation on what the offer should be, some of these clients still seem to get it wrong!

Even after being retained and after a challenging search and protracted interview process, the client decides that although they know that the candidate is currently making $185,000 salary, and they were prepared to go…

Countering the Counter Offer

Have you ever sourced the Best Candidate; sold them on the opportunity with your company or client; worked with them through the interview process, answering their questions; helped the hiring manager determine the best compensation package; extend the offer that they accepted; and then lost the candidate to a counter offer?  If you have been in the recruitment business for any amount of time, you have experienced that sinking feeling when they stop returning your calls.

Employers – Stop Wasting My Time

Have you noticed how terrible most job postings are? Not very many stand out from the thousands of computer generated/outdated job descriptions from stuffy HR departments. Your postings tell candidates an awful lot about your company as soon as they see it. Will they read on or will they just jump to the next one that…

Compel IT candidates to accept your offer by making a personal connection

Here’s a news flash – finding top IT talent is becoming increasingly difficult as budgets loosen up and employers are desperate to fill positions requiring high demand skills.  The problem seems to be that there are more jobs (believe it or not) than qualified candidates (who are actively looking for a career change).

Finding top talent can be a bit challenging in today’s market, but that’s what IT recruitment agencies like…

Job seekers - how much $$$ do you really want?

This blog, the second of a two part series, focuses on candidate salary requirements and how job seekers should handle salary issues before and after an employer makes an offer.

Last week we blogged about candidate salary requirements, and things employers need to consider before extending an offer. We gave an example of a highly qualified candidate who provided her salary requirements to the recruiter…

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.

The question made me remember my recruitment consultancy training of how to handle such situations.  Fortunately, now possessing the in-house experience I was in a better position to offer balanced(ish)  advice for…

The redo

Each week, we blog about things that will help job seekers land the perfect job. We blog about these things because we’re the experts when it comes to recruitment. We’re the experts, but sometimes we find ourselves in sticky situations – like not finding out what a candidate’s real motivators are until after a job offer is on the table. …

Ingredient for a great job offer: COCA

True story. A recruiter at Agile was working with a candidate for a position at a client company. It was a terrific opportunity, and the candidate – let’s call him Chuck (not his real name) – wanted the job. Chuck had been unemployed for several months, so it’s only normal that he was anxious about closing the deal. The process was taking longer than he had anticipated, partly because the hiring manager was on the fence about Chuck.…
