Clients are always interested in getting the right people hired so that growth and development can be accelerated. In a tight hiring market we have found that it is essential for the hiring executive to be ready to move forward with an attractive offer. Hesitation, over thinking and trying to cut too fine a deal generally leads to the wrong outcome for both the hiring manager and the hired candidate.
Be ready to move forward with an offer because you have the information you need to know about the candidate. Here is a short list of things to make sure of:
1) The key performance indicators of the job you need to fill match closely with what he hired candidate has accomplished to date.
2) The candidate’s references check out very well.
3) There is a strong consensus among the hiring team that this is the right candidate for the job.
If you and your colleagues reach this point in your search you are ready to move forward.
