Back Door Hires Case Study #1 “We Already Knew The Candidate”

We Already Knew The Candidate

The most common excuse we hear from debtors that do not want to pay a recruitment fee is, “We already knew the candidate.” In most cases, these types of Backdoor Hires are the easiest to collect. The biggest hurdle for us to jump is to help the debtor understand that knowing the candidate and knowing they are looking for a job are two very different things. We also have the backdrop that the owner of the company is MAD; they are not really angry with the recruiter, but they are mad at either themselves or their HR manager because they did not have a better pulse on what candidates were actually available.
