Managing Director Insights

Have You Spoken With Your Manager?


This is one of the first questions we ask a candidate, when they tell us they want to leave because there is no room to grow in their current situation.

It’s an ethical recruiting move.

It helps prevent counter-offers.

It helps validate the decision to accept a better offer.

It was gratifying to see a candidate start this week with one of our clients, sales position, where he has a chance to grow into a sales manager.

Before he started the interview process with us, he got confirmation from his manager … no room to grow in the fore seeable future.

OK, let’s run.

Knowing where you stand is not always clear in a remote world.

But it never hurts to ask.

Weather Gods have listened, 55-80 and sunny.

Make it a great day, everyone!
