Who are you working for?
Who is paying your fee? If the candidate is paying you then send him to the best job for him. But most recruiters are paid by the client or the company they work for. Your job as a recruiter is to bring the best, possible placement to ensure the satisfaction of your client. I call it pretention.
Scattering a candidate is like trying to hit the bull's eye with a shot gun. Doesn't happen.
All good points, everybody. I think that I have a latent fear that once he hears about the positions in Maryland he's going to make them interest #1 and the NY job will become his second interest. Right now he's the only candidate we have going for a second interview with this client and they aren't the type to "courtesy interview." The client actually put the order on hold yesterday because they feel their pipeline is full enough but then they came back and decided to schedule my guy with the hiring manager. I don't want him to pull away and burn a door with the client...I guess my strategy is going to be to make sure he knows that he is not guaranteed anything and should treat all opportunities seriously.
