I'm sorry if this comes off as a first world problem but over the past few years I have been getting an increasing volume of emails from recruiters. These emails have started amounting to a few minutes of wasted time each day - this started amounting to hours every month.
I participate a lot in Stack Overflow and GitHub which probably brings attention to my name and I speak at conferences semi-regularly. I'm a collaborator in some relatively popular projects which doesn't exactly "help" in this regard. I assume that if this is a problem for me it must be a bigger problem for people who are more prolific (and there are plenty of those in StackOverflow).
Some of these emails are relevant but most are not - and in any case I am not actively looking for a new job.
- What can I do to deal with these emails?
- How can I get them to stop or at least deal with them more quickly without making myself less available to non-recruiting emails?
To clarify - I still do want to get relevant emails from people asking me about my code or my answers so downright making it impossible to contact me would not help. My LinkedIn literally says I'm only using it for their developer API and does not contain a picture or contact information. I have absolutely zero related organization at the moment at my personal mailbox.
