That’s life!

20th December 2013

So sometimes things go wrong, and that’s life! Recently, I had the perfect candidate; great CV, impressive experience and an enthusiastic work ethic. The job was in the palm of her hand yet after a few minor bumps along the interview road and not being fully prepared, she had already made her mind up that she wasn’t going to attend the final interview stage; she had gotten herself in the wrong mind set and there was nothing I could do. Have I heard from her since? No. Could I find her a job that she would flourish in? Absolutely.

We have also experienced situations in the past where we do a huge amount of work for a client, placing the right candidates in front of them and then suddenly global HQ pulls the headcount or they have an internal applicant at the last minute leaving us to gently let the interviewees down. Do we hear from the client afterwards? Sometimes not. Could we find them textbook candidates to fill future positions? Yes.

So why the sudden radio silence? Well, no-one likes to feel that they have egg on their face, however, we understand that things happen and that sometimes, something will go wrong and we are fine with that; there is no need to feel so embarrassed that you cannot approach us again. Looking for a job isn’t easy and trying to find the perfect candidate to fill the empty chair in the office can be even harder. So don’t walk away. Remember instead that the healthcare sector is a competitive one so it’s all the more important to work in partnership with a recruitment partner to get things right. And the next time you experience a bump in the recruitment road remember, that’s just life!
