The talent pool is tight and it is expected to get even tighter in the upcoming years. Due to the age gap with the Baby Boomer generation retiring and Millennials and Gen Z moving up in the workforce, there will be more jobs open than candidates to fill them. This means that companies will be working harder to retain their employees. Chances of receiving a counteroffer when turning in a resignation letter are likely to increase. As chemical recruiters and animal health recruiters, counteroffers are something we are very familiar with and speak to candidates about often. Our suggestion: consider not accepting the counteroffer.

No one likes to be ghosted- from the candidate or company side. What is ghosting in the hiring and interview process? It is when a candidate or
company seemingly “disappears” with no explanation. It is the lack of feedback or reason for why company is not interested in a candidate or why a candidate is no longer pursuing an opportunity. This can look like a candidate going through a few interviews and then never hearing back from the company, or it can be a company reaching out to a candidate after interviewing and never getting a response again. In both situations, neither candidate nor companies like to be ghosted. To stand out in a world of ghosting, make a point to reach out and explain the reasoning for not moving forward and thank the candidate and/or interviewers for their time. Make ghosting a thing of the past.
