I wanted to talk about something strange that's been happening with me and recruiters on LinkedIn.
The thing is, the recruiters contact me there through the messaging service describing a potential role, asking when I would be available to discuss more, and to reply with my resume. And they're all marked as recruiters by LinkedIn.
So I reply with my resume (and I have a regularly updated one present already on my profile on the front page) saying that I'm grateful they reached out to me about the role and I would be delighted to discuss more, etc.
The strange thing is, after explicitly and directly reaching out to me to get in touch, not a single one of the recruiter ever replies back when I reply to their original message. And I don't even take that long to reply, usually a few hours.
Can someone please help me to figure out what might be going on? What am I doing wrong? Why does every recruiter turn cold without exception? I have no criminal history or anything. What could be the cause?
How should I handle this?
