As the job market heats up, more applicants will accept jobs and then back out at the last minute, or simply fail to show up on Day 1. Midlevel sales, financial and IT workers are most likely to pull this stunt, according to a Kennedy Information survey of 100 search firms.
To avoid being hit with this bait-and-switch move:
1. Shorten the amount of time between job offer and starting date.
2. Speed the evaluation process for certain jobs that have fewer criteria to measure.
3. Consider signing bonuses for hard-to-fill positions.
4. Hold off announcing that the job is filled until the person actually begins work.
