How Hiring Manager’s are like Goldilocks from the Three Bears Story

How looking for candidates can be like finding the perfect porridge…a reference to finding that elusive purple squirrel !

Hiring Manager: This is a new role so we are ‘open’ on Salary

Recruiter: Ok, here are two candidates both on different ends of the salary expectations

Hiring Manager: Ronald – he’s too junior, not enough experience and Sean – he’s too senior, want’s too way much money!

Finding the perfect candidate for our clients is finding that candiate that has “Just Enough” experience but is not too “hot” or too “cold” from the job description.

This the reason when you are writing your resume, you really need to tailor it to the job description you are applying for, so take the extra time, or you might find your self not “just right” for the role.
