#155: Set a Clear and Realistic Timeline

Finding your dream job can take a long time, sometimes much longer than anticipated. These extended timelines can be challenging for candidates, recruiters and the hiring team.

It's hard enough to search for a new job, and if you're engaged in a lengthy interview or recruitment process, it only makes things harder.

One may might wait too long to accept a good offer with another organization or give up entirely if the recruitment process takes an inordinately long time.

As a candidate make sure to ask your recruiter:

When the client plans to make a hiring decision?

How much of your time you will the interview process take?

By communicating your expectations about time and timing from the start, candidates can plan and organize their job search accordingly.
