You just completed a placement and you’re getting ready to move on to the next search. Your client is happy, you’re happy and then comes one of the most dreaded calls or emails that we can ever receive as recruiters.  The message… “I’m declining the offer.”

Before you start blaming the candidate, ask yourself, “What did I miss?”

While there are no iron clad steps recruiters can take to guarantee a 100% falloff free career, here are some thoughts that can help. Many of these follow the ABC or “Always Be Closing” rule of sales.

As top tier recruiters, one of our jobs is to create possibilities. A proactive submission is one excellent avenue and a strategy where everyone wins. But, more about that later.

In order to put this strategy into play, we must think beyond the searches we’re currently focusing on and be ready to act when an opportunity presents itself. The ideal scenario is when a candidate you’ve established a long relationship with, reaches out to let you know that he or she is back in the market. Perhaps you have no open positions at the moment reflecting their expertise but, you’re well aware of their talents, so, get creative!
