When Can You Start?

Interview Question: When would you be able to start?

Okay….pretty obvious question. That being said I can’t tell you how often we hear of the company that was stunned to learn their prized new hire cannot come on board for six weeks. The issues range from previously planned vacations, to a commitment to their current employer to stay around for some critical task, to the need to wait to give notice until after their bonus is paid out. Regardless of the issue be sure this question is on your “must ask” list for every interview conducted with a candidate in whom you have interest.
