This question already has an answer here:
I am now receiving more messages and invitations on LinkedIn than I can handle. These messages almost always contain invitation the the phone/skype/onsite interview.
I have no interests right now in changing jobs (I just started few weeks ago in the new workplace) but at the same time I don't want to burn any bridges with potential future employers and recruiters. However I don't want to spend my time every single day on LinkedIn replying to the messages or accepting invitations from the unknown people.
I did post 3 months ago this message on my LinkedIn profile (which is my only post out there):
Hello all, I don't like to ignore any human being but I don't have time to reply to every message here. So to make it clear:
I am not looking for a new job since I've already signed with another company. So at least for the next year I am good, thanks.
Should I be looking for a new job I will use the switch on LinkedIn "tell recruiters that you are open".
but it seems like people don't even bother to read it before writing to me.
How do I handle it this situation? Is ignoring all notifications from LinkedIn for the next two years or so the only way to go?
edit: the field is software engineering and I am located currently in Scandinavia.
