1. If you can't wait: Hire someone internally and close the position through an IJP.
2. If you can wait: Wait for 2 more months for the candidate to join - I am sure, business can wait for additional 8 weeks. Hiring someone else externally is going to take even longer time. Please stick to the candidate and follow-up extensively.

rkn61What if your company/management can wait for the identified candidate, till he gets formal relieving letter from his current employer and take up new assignments in your company, without any impediment.
Please look into this.
Else, if you/your company are not particular about relieving order form his current employer,
you can inform this to the candidate, and allow him to join earlier.
