The Challenge (CONT’D FROM PAGE 34)


If they want a less demanding job, better hours, or a lower stress level, a well-qualified candidate might change companies and take a pay cut. They might just need to get to a new location for family or other reasons. It could work out for you. But as a recruiter, it’s a red flag when A+ candidates are willing to go somewhere for C+ money. Usually, they’re out of work and desperately have to accept the first thing they find. There are many other reasons a qualified candidate would accept a compensation that is lower than industry standard, but most of them are not very good. In my expe- rience, the unicorn you hire at a lower rate usually turns out to be a horse with a carrot taped to its head, and you end up back at square one within the year. So, the next time you have a position that has been open for a long time, consider whether the compensation range is appropriate for the role, and what the right ap- proach is if it doesn’t measure up. Or call up your favorite recruiter and ask! And, as alway, Never Let the Boxes Get You Down! Teresa Hundt has been recruiting specifically for the corrugated industry for five years.
