It’s important, for a number of reasons, not to try to fit a square peg into a round hole.  There are two sides to this equation, and both are equally important to match to the other.  On one side of the equation, you have what the client and hiring manager are looking for with their next hire, and on the other side of the equation, you have what this candidate is looking to accomplish in making a career move.  It is essential to evaluate both sides; to do this accurately, you’ll have to go back to the drawing board of the original search assignment you took from this client, and start to walk through the process of comparing and contrasting who the client is looking to hire with who this candidate is and what he or she brings to the table.
