I recently found myself in a very similar situation to many candidates I have worked with in the past, finding a new job. As recruiters and sourcers, we can quickly become accustomed to the rollercoaster ride of the employment market. Jobs can come, and jobs will disappear. Whether it’s from layoffs, contracts ending, or a change of scenery, we all will eventually become candidates. One of the most valuable lessons that I’ve learned in my recent search is that timing is everything.
