This morning was very nice as Melanie and I had breakfast with a lovely and talented candidate. She was really the perfect candidate—poised, polished, articulate, informative, and curious about what we do as well. She came to the interview totally prepared to speak about her experience in detail and asked all of the right questions. One of the things I appreciated most was her honesty. She was completely upfront about the fact that she was quite happy in her current role and had not actively been exploring new opportunities. She was, however, open to having conversations with different agencies and seeing if something struck her as a good fit (which emphasizes my previous blog to candidates- “The Best Time to Look Is When You’re Happy”. It was refreshing to meet with this candidate and it got my morning off to a great start and even reminded me why I love this job as much as I do. Because of how wonderfully she presented herself and her experience, I will always think of her when I am briefed on new roles that are relevant to her background and carer goals.
