Hiring Whiplash


This happened recently.

Position is scorching hot!

Great candidates presented quickly.

Position is on hold!

Shoot, OK. We’ll let the candidates know.

Position is open, again! Hotter than ever. Need to fill ASAP. Is Joe still interested?

Hiring whiplash.

It happens.

Managers are trying to do their best for their company.

The powers on high though, make moves on headcount based on what they are seeing in the market place.

Sometimes the tide changes quickly.

Not bad intentions.

Not bad decision making.

Just part of managing a business.

But, when it happens, it’s critical to have top a shelf Search Consulting firm in place, to protect the employer hiring brand.

Our professionally trained and veteran SCN recruiter was able to ‘slow it down’ with the candidates in play. Make them at ease with the ‘subtle’ changes in direction.

The result, all great candidates remained in play, interviewed, and the best-fit candidate was hired.

That’s SCN.

We take great pride in properly representing our clients in the market, and in protecting their hiring brand.

Now, Ms. Vice President, you said you wanted to have a conversation about our fee % …. ok … let me tell you a few stories that recently happened on the front lines …

40 degrees and clouds. But I’ve got a feeling … good weather coming.

Same here at SCN, good things coming.

Make it a great day everyone!
