Solicit comments from the other interviewers and the feedback from the Recruiter with respect to the Candidate.
If you decide to make the Candidate an offer, consider the following:
1. Don’t wait more than 2 days to make the offer. There is a very narrow time-line in which to tie-up the process. In a tight labour market you risk losing a candidate to another company.
2. The offer should be verbal and followed up in writing with a “Welcome” letter. Many companies are drawing up a ‘Letter of Offer’ for their senior positions which offers clarification on requirements and expectations. Otherwise, simply prepare a friendly letter that lets the candidate know that you are looking forward to their joining the team and then confirm your verbal offer with a specific outline of the terms you discussed. Have the candidate sign and mail a copy back to you. This exercise generally helps to bind a candidate mentally to the opportunity.
