Companies are really good about NOT talking about how frustrating finding a new hire can be for them.

I’ve experienced and seen this first-hand and continue to speak with hiring managers all the time.

Companies always want you to believe they are in full control and can choose whomever they want. That can potentially give them leverage in the discussions, however…

The idea that these negotiations are one-sided is often untrue.

Hiring the wrong person or taking too long to make a hiring decision can be incredibly disruptive to the other employees, not to mention create a risk that employees will leave the company if the workload isn’t spread across more people, for example.

Employees are expensive for companies and, often, an internal case needs to be made and a budget needs to be approved before interviews can begin. That often takes time and approvals are never guaranteed.

Jobseekers: please keep this in mind when you’re interviewing. While you want or need a new role, companies also need a solid employee and can’t afford to have a big misstep.

Let this insight give you more confidence and awareness about the hiring dynamics as you move along in your job search.

Well then, maybe companies need to quit looking for unicorn candidates, people with a college education in precisely their field, 10 years’ experience, and willing to work for less than market wages. Oh, and if they’re a good looking blonde, that helps too. And of course, they need to be under 50 years of age, preferably under 45 years of age.
