Time is your enemy when hiring a good software engineer candidate

Our client is a software company start-up looking for a senior javascript software engineer. They shared that this hire was critical for them and that they needed to hire this person yesterday. We presented them with a strong candidate who had javascript experience and a background in java and c++ development, along with a degree in computer science. The candidate had a great background for the position was very interested in the opportunity. They responded 1 week later with a high degree of interest, and a desire to bring the candidate in immediately. Unfortunately, it was too late. That candidate was off the market. Like many other start-ups, they were busy with lots of things on their to do list. In this market, while being busy is understandable, if hiring is truly critical for your company, it must become a priority. Don’t lose a good candidate because of time.
