|Suddenly the candidate's|
glass is half full.
It was suggested I call the candidate up and simply say, "We'd like to carry on in the process, but it's been brought to our attention that you've moved a good deal in your career, and we're committed to finding someone who's in it for the long term."
Even the committee thought this was okay.
Called him up. He's a trailing spouse. His wife works in bio-tech, and has jumped around a bit herself because of grants. But she's just taken a longer term position at a large lab near us and since it's more administrative, there's less reason to move. And, here's the clincher. They have a new grandbaby about 30 miles away.
We're going to interview him.
Should he have told us in his letter? What kind of stuff should we tell committees in letter? This personal? Grandbabies?
I'm suddenly reading every job packet differently.
