Update on our local lead: Paul had great phone and in-person interviews with the recruiter before Christmas and she left it at “the next step will be in about three weeks.”
He called yesterday to follow up with her, and to put a little pressure on “there’s this other job … I won’t be around forever …” and she called back this morning.
He is still the only qualified applicant she has found.
That would be a good thing except that part of the contract when companies hire recruiters is that recruiters find, interview, screen, and then present a pool of qualified applicants. She can’t take Paul to the next level until she’s met her quota of candidates to present.
