A buddy of mine has been looking for work for a long time. He is a help-desk professional. I had a drink with him last night, and he was talking about a recruiter that had asked him to send him a copy of his resume.
This seemed odd to me, as his LinkedIn profile matches his resume and includes recommendations. (I do the same with my LinkedIn profile)
Why would a recruiter who found a candidate on LinkedIn in not be able to use that information to submit for an opportunity?
