For Recruiters: In a high-demand market for IT professionals, your job is not the only opportunity a candidate is evaluating. Make sure to ask your candidate, “what other roles have sparked your interests? Are there other companies you would be interested in joining?” There is nothing wrong with doing a compare and contrast between your opening and what the candidate is also interested in. It’s important to know where your opportunity ranks so you can address any potential concerns that could come up during the closing.
For Candidates: As a candidate, make sure you are open and honest with your recruiter. It’s important to make your motivations very apparent so they can make sure they are bringing the best opportunity to you. You can fully prepare by anticipating the questions above and reviewing our blog “How to Answer Frequently Asked Interview Questions.”
