In the current job market climate, hiring managers are naive to think that candidates will still be interested and available if a final interview or offer extension process is delayed for weeks.

TOP 3 Reasons Why Candidates Lose Interest In Jobs During The Interview Process
  • “Time delay.” Talent becomes skeptical of employee interest and sincerity to hire when weeks go by between rounds of interviews, and especially between final interview and offer.
  • “Our worst offer first.” Clients who offer talent the bottom or below the outlined expected compensation will have a hard time convincing talent they are valuable during negotiations.
  • “Other offers.” Hiring managers should assume anyone they are interviewing is interviewing elsewhere, too. Good talent will have multiple offers.

Planning your annual conference spend/agenda is a critical part of your professional development.

TOP 3 Legalweek 2019 Takeaways
  • It is Legalweek, not Legaltech. The shift and focus for target audience is now lawyers, not just legal technologists.
  • There was lots of talk of “AI” but few are really using it; this event still centers largely on e-discovery providers and ancillary solutions.
  • Almost everyone on the consulting firm and service provider side of legal services was in town, and the meetings that occur at this event still set the tone for the year ahead for new and renewed business alliances.
