The Wizard of Oz: That's what I call a prospective candidate who's impossible to pin down for a meeting. He claims to be interested, then can't meet for weeks, or reschedules multiple times (always at the last minute). Even phone calls are difficult to book.
Thankfully the Wizard's candidacy never lasts long. That’s because I pull the plug and move on.
Why? Consider some possible explanations for the Wizard’s behavior:
I know many recruiters who wouldn't hesitate to chase the Wizard. Not me. I've been doing this long enough to know that the Wizard isn't as great and wonderful as he thinks he is.
