Is it unprofessional if I write "No recruiters! Thank You." in my LinkedIn Summary? Because I get at least 3-4 messages a day from recruiters with a lot of buzzwords.

    It is not unprofessional; in fact, I'd do the same if I ever made an account on there.

    “I’ve seen you have ‘no recruiters’ in your description. It made me laugh as it reminded me of myself 6 months ago, I completely agree with you, the way recruiters currently conduct themselves is disgraceful.

    That’s why I stepped away and setup my own recruitment firm, so we can do things right. Would you be free for a call sometime to discuss how we could help each other?”

    ^ this x 4692, in the next 6 months

    @ColdFore it will happen dude. I was fed up with maybe 1/10 of mine being about a hybrid mobile role. So I put “no hybrid” in mine. I’d say it’s gone to 4/10 now.

    Keywords mofo, keywords!

    They don't actually read anything.

    @katbreitin Trust me. There were 2 time that I really needed a job. I went to recruiters. I did not find anything. Not a single phone interview, let alone on site interview.

    So many of my contacts on there are recruiters. I figure I'm collecting them for a rainy day. If things go south, I can go on that platform and basically post that I need a job and they'll all come running.

    @practiseSafeHex Well played, sir. In fact, it was so close to reality it made me incredibly angry.

    Isn’t the only reason for a LinkedIn account to advertise yourself to potential employers?

    I have "don't call me during office hours" and just block the fuckers who do, it filters out the worst recruiters and i can look through the emails on weekends. Anything generic goes straight to the trash (if you can't even tell me what the company is doing then GTFO)

    I keep getting recruiters offering help desk positions. Contract positions. In other countries. Listen, I spent two years in a help desk role. That's enough for my lifetime. I just got out last year. I'm not going back in. Especially not as a contractor. Especially not on another freaking continent.

    @matste It's also for connecting with employers and coworkers. And even if it is for job-searching, what do you do after you get a new job? Delete your account?

    @ColdFore Are they really that useless? As a junior dev I am one of the ugly chicks at the party they don’t want to fuck...so they mostly leave me alone.
Your Job Suck?
