Who is a Passive Candidate?
A passive candidate is someone an employer is considering to give a job or position, but they are not actively seeking any new positions. Passive candidates are not looking for a new job and have not applied for any openings. However, their qualifications or experience or some other reasons may make them attractive to recruiters. Such candidates have a wide range of skills and experiences that make them desirable for employers. They are at times difficult to recruit, especially if they are satisfied with their current employment.
