lined initial offer. Plus, the sooner they can lockdown acceptances for this level of hire of job offer the quicker they can accommodate start dates and relocation coordination.
For more senior candidates employers typically give some leeway if the request for time to consider the offer is within reason (a week max). Plus, a candidate is technically a free agent until they report to work. I’ve experienced declines from previously accepted offers with the reason being they received a better offer from a competitor. Employers are not happy with that outcome, but they learn to make adjustments when it occurs.
Finally, pressing for a start date does not hurt an employer’s image, particularly in these tough economic times. As I mentioned earlier, most employers will give a reasonable amount of time for a decision, but delaying that decision can spark concerns that there may be a problem with the offer, or that the candidate may be leaning toward declining—possibly because they may have another offer coming. If you put that idea in an employer’s mind I’ve actually seen offers being withdrawn because there was hesitation by a candidate.
reat RPO operations out there doing excellent work for their clients. They serve a real need in recruiting with companies that have an ever changing recruiting need. RPOs can typically ramp up faster and more efficiently that the customer themselves can and they can maintain a strong level of talent. There are certainly companies out there doing everything and anything and calling it RPO but a true RPO firm that augments their clients recruitment efforts can and typically is highly effective tool for HR departments. Additionally, contrary to your post RPOs are heavily scrutinized on their performance. We have a platform just for RPO firms and customer specific SLA reporting is by far the most requested thing from customers ongoing because of that scrutiny.
I don't see the industry going anywhere but up. In fact, it is arguably the fastest growing area of 3rd party recruitment.

I wonder where this thread will go today?…
