I recently received a message from a recruiter on Linkedin, that read something as follows:
Our client in best-of-whatever-industry is looking to hire a Sr. Software Developer for their headquarters in Some City, State. Your profile seems to match very well so I was hoping to discuss the role.
Regards, Some Name
This recruiter didn't even include my name (the slightest amount of effort), nor did they mention what the role entails at all, or how I might fit said role.
It doesn't look like spam based on the recruiter's profile/connections, but it also seems like they are making literally zero effort in trying to find candidates. I did check the company's website, however, and the role might be a good fit.
Is this likely to be an indicator for how the recruiter will handle future communications and if so are there any downsides to me engaging with them?
