Why Counteroffers Don’t Work – Ilya Talman With the job market becoming very competitive this year, it’s fairly common for candidates to juggle more than one offer.

What we’re seeing in both the Chicago and New York markets are exceptional candidates with a general confidence that even if the new role doesn’t work out for any reason, they will find other opportunities they won’t have to wait forever for.
