I'm writing this column on the heels of a recruiting call I made recently on behalf of a downtown Chicago-based client. The candidate I spoke with is in-house at a company headquartered in nearby suburban Schaumburg, Illinois. She goes into the nearby headquarters office two days per week as part of her company's hybrid model. While my client could offer a better position in terms of title and compensation, this candidate was unwilling to commute into downtown Chicago three days per week as part of my client's hybrid office model.
