A recruiter accepted my LinkedIn personal connection request. I put a message there telling him how interested I am in working for the company and how my skills will be a great fit for the position.
He accepted my connection request which allows me to message him directly (If I view my messages on LinkedIn it has an option to send him a message). I have already applied for the position to the generic HR@domainname email address, should I still send my CV directly to the recruiter on LinkedIn via message to reinforce my interest in the position?
Edit: To clarify, I have only sent my CV to the HR general email address, not the recruiter via LinkedIn yet.
