I have been working at the same company for 6 years now. Every so often I have recruiters call me and whenever they do, it's like a broken record. The script is always the same or near the same:
hello this is [recruiter name]. I tried to reach you at [a month ago] in regards to new opportunities; wanted to give you a call; see how things have been going as far as your employment; phone for me is [phone number]
I started ignoring their calls. But if I pick up and talk to them, I explain that I am working and have been working at my company for 5-6 years now, and I am happy there and not currently seeking new opportunities.
Recruiters follow up by asking me if I know anyone who may be seeking employment and I usually don't, so I say no, I don't, and the sometimes the conversation ends here, or sometimes the recruiter asks me if they can give me a follow up call 6 month later. I sometimes say "sure", part out of superficial politeness, part just in case.
But this is getting boring, and since I am not actively seeking employment for years now, it seems like a waste of time to me and I'm sure the recruiter as well. These calls are an annoying nuisance. What do I do? Do I just tell them to stop calling and take me off their list?
