“Closing the Deal”
Getting the right candidates to accept a job offer is “make or break” in hiring top talent. Some keys to success include moving fast when finding the right candidate, as competitors will likely want to hire the same person. Make sure you and the direct supervisor are connecting personally with candidates that are interviewing as this really makes a candidate feel comfortable and excited about your organization. Be enthusiastic at the candidate’s career prospects with your organization when offering them a position. Finally, think about the job offer from the candidate’s perspective; examine the benefits and perks the position offers, and get to know their other important considerations.
