What happens when your number one job candidate turns down your best offer? Here’s what happens: you’re suddenly breaking all speed records to reach back out to Finalists Two and Three (and maybe Four). But if they were so great, they may no longer be available. And if they’re no longer interested, you’re starting all over again, re-working your network for the same job. The repeat calls, emails, postings, conversations and negotiations cost you time, money and credibility.
