State Of Constant Change

The candidate pool for any search is constantly changing.

An available candidate accepts a new position, no longer in the pool.

Qualified potential candidate who won’t respond to new opportunities because they are happy where they are has a sudden change and is now open to considering a change, enters the pool.

Candidate with too little experience crosses that line so they now have enough, enters the pool.

The candidate pool is a living breathing thing.  Effective…
