I have not been actively searching for a job, but I received an email from a recruiter saying that he wants to talk to me about some specific clients of his and asked my updated resume. Although I am not looking to switch jobs right now, I would not want to miss a good opportunity. The thing is, I don't have any experience with recruiters, and I don't know what's normal.
In her email she did not mention anything about:
- why she contacted specifically me
- what skills/previous experience make me an eligible candidate for her clients.
If I erase my name from her mail and put anyone else's name not a single word from her mail would need to change. Is this an indication that this would be a waste of time for me? Or do usually recruiters just have a template and sent out for a first contact?
