    I think that this is good advice … and I’ll follow it up with some advice that every recruiter SHOULD know, but only the really good ones can put effectively into practice: When you’ve found exceptionally good talent that is *also* a great cultural/organizational fit, don’t let market data (especially for positions in emerging/growth areas) be the reason you fail to make the hire. 

    The flipside, of course, is that subpar (or lazy) recruiters will offer whever it takes to land any candidate … which in the long run is worse.  And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is why having great recruiters is so important to any company!  Thanks again for the post … will be curious to see how this discussion evolves over time.
