...and HR said, "Wait! WE make the offer! You don't do that! I can't believe you did that!" :shock: (Not really, but that's what it feels like.)
Usually I'm in my HR buddy's office every day getting coaching, but he's been out of town recruiting this week and my boss said hurry up and hire so I did. This is only my second, my first was an internal candidate and I should have realized there would be red tape.
Despite my initial desire to cry, "But nobody TOLD me!," I have to admit that I didn't do all my homework & prep before phoning the candidate. :oops: So my buddy was out of town -- he's still checking email. Or I could have asked the HR Director.
I hope this isn't a CLM (career-limiting move).
