Your recruiter is bugging you for a reason.
They know youve got a desirable candidate and dont want you to miss out.Let them help you win the race.
You need to make candidates feel wanted and enthusiastic.
There are plenty of others who will.
Make time sooner rather than later
Be eager to hire

2) Dont think the grass is greener
Sometimes, the first candidate you see is the best.It happens.
Dont let that make you think they are the first of a stream of better and better candidates.
Benchmarking is important,but dont let it take the focus.
You wont be the only one who wants to hire that candidate, so dont miss out for process-sake.
Be decisive know who you want quickly
Dont keep asking for more

There are times when you will have to move slowly,getting through red tape.
But dont stick your head in the sand.
Candidates will either move on, or theyll feel deflated.
Communication is key.
Give a timetable
Keep the flow of information any news is good news
Help candidates feel the loveTips:
4) Do be flexible
Even if youve run a speedy process, it can all break down in negotiation.
If you wont compete with the benefits offered by competitors, then youll fall behind in the race for talent.
Big corporations can afford a travel allowance or a few extra days holiday.Seriously.
Even if youre small, you can make non-financial offers working from home or a conditional bonus.
Think about the bigger race
Convince the candidate youre an amazing place to work
Your customers want everything yesterday, and your candidates are no different.
They want to work for ambitious, fast-moving companies, and will be put off by a dragging recruitment process.
So stretch your legs and put your trainers on
well see you track side.
