5 Risk Factors that a candidate will renege on a job offer or not show up on Day 1. Part 1: Mental pulse
How do you spot someone during the job interview process who has a high chance of later flaking on you?
Because there ARE some telltale signs that tell you if someone is likely to pull a no-show later on.
So that’s what we’re going to cover in this video.
When someone reneges on your job offer, it means that it was not attractive enough, plain and simple.
It has not met their needs. What kind of needs do job candidates have? According to the Five Pulse model, there’s mental, physical, emotional, spiritual and agility needs.

What are the risk factors that increase the likelihood that your offer may not meet their MENTAL needs?
Of course, these are only subtle signs. You will not be giving a job offer to someone who didn’t prepare at ALL for the job interview and didn’t have ANYTHING interesting to say. So this checklist is for those subtle edge cases, a word here and there, something small that didn’t feel completely right.
