Unlike active candidates, passive candidates are the most sought after resources in the job industry as they are known for their stability, contribution and performance in their respective company. However, in this day and age, novice recruitment professionals aren’t in a position to source passive candidates for niche requirements.
Candidates are the most prized possessions in the recruitment industry. As recruiters, we make it a point to track the progress of each candidate we place with our clients. We take regular updates and information regarding their growth and performance in the organisation.
Recently, I overheard one of the team leads repeat “reneging on job… reneged” over the phone with a client. Though I knew what it meant, I wondered why the team lead used ‘renege’ in this context!
You might have come across situations where potential job-seekers slammed the phone in your face or had an unending argument accusing you of false notifications. This is a very common behaviour, every recruiter experiences over the phone.
