I was asked to comment on his week points. After some thoughts, I told the person on the other end of the line: "Jay is a down-to-earth person. He just knows how to do his job. He is not good at corporate politics. If your team has complicated personnel relationship, Jay is not a suitable candidate. "
I am very happy to report that Jay got an offer., though he needs to relocate. Of course, it is his own skills that earn him the offer. However, I am very happy that I did not spoil his businnes.
