I used some recruitment companies when I was unemployed and also had my CV on publicly accessible profiles on the internet.
Once I found a job I set all those profiles to private or deleted them (if the website didn't allow hiding them) and I also made sure to notify several recruitment companies that contacted me afterwards that I had found a position and were not looking for offers.
It has been more than a year since then but recruitment companies still call me, send me e-mails or try to connect with me on LinkedIn, either to ask what I'm looking for or whether I'm interested in a position they're advertising.
At this point in time I am satisfied with the position I do have and, although I keep telling that to recruiters, they still ask about others. I understand that they expect a better offer may make me want to try for it, but currently I want to stay where I am.
On one hand I don't want to be bothered by recruiters when I know beforehand that I'm going to say no to whatever they're asking, but on the other hand I don't want to "burn my bridges" with them, in case I need them again in the future, when I will be looking for a new position.
Should I keep ignoring them or is it possible that this will make them reluctant to work with me in the future? Otherwise, how I can make it clear to them that I don't want them to ask me about anything until I say I am available again?
