A (company-internal) recruiter reached out to me via linkedin a few days ago. We had a call and he arranged a conversation with their higher management level. The contact is very preliminary, I've just talked to the recruiter about the role very quickly and we didn't talk about any details yet, including the compensation.
I now discovered that somebody from the team I would be managing visited my linkedin profile.
I'm very concerned. It's a smallish company and we live in a big city. There's a chance that's a coincidence but it's relatively small. None of my linkedin contacts works for the company. I assume the HR or somebody from the management must have mentioned me to the person or the whole team.
I have a good job right now and I don't want anybody to know I'm considering switching. I don't even know if I'm interested in switching at all. I'm very concerned that they might have shared the info about me being interested with the team that early in the process. Is that a red flag?
I'm i the EU.
