Why do the good ones disappear???

Okay, so I'm starting to notice a trend. Why do my DIRECT FITS and GOLD candidates disappear on me? I interview them, they agree to have an interview set up with the client, I schedule the interview with the client, and POOF they are gone? I have developed rapport with the candidate, expressed the "open communication" thing, so why does this only happen with the GREAT candidates? :( Help!

Thought of the Day

No matter what a customer promises, when you lower your price they’ll never pay more for the same services. Once you go down, you can’t go back up.

Don't Let Relocation Reluctance Sink Placements - Part 1

Despite the fact that housing prices are finally rising, recruiters are still having trouble filling positions that require relocation.

Relocation always has the potential of being a hard sell. After all, you are trying to convince someone to uproot themselves and often their entire family to take a chance not only on a new job but a whole new geographic area. But "relocation reluctance" has reached a fever pitch since the recession decimated home values across the country. Candidates…
