I have a firm that says they have multiple candidates ready right now! Why does it take more time through ESG?
Some firms do not have multiple candidates just waiting. That line is usually used as a sales tactic. Also, firms give the best candidates to companies that pay the highest fee.

What is the difference between a passive and active candidate?
Passive candidates are people who are currently employed and are not seeking employment. They typically have a history of career stability and effectiveness. Active candidates are typically referred to as those in a job search. They are actively looking for a new role. They can be unemployed or simply dissatisfied with their current position.
