I posted a certification right after completion. A recruiter reached out next day with a position that required certification + 10 YOE.

I’ve had that happen to me. But honestly I did give the recruiter kudos for matching one word on my profile title when many don’t even bother with that.

Recruiter hit me with $45K, no benefits, 12 month contract to hire.

Got repeated emails from a recruiter to leave a full time job for $60/ hr contract role.

I'm a software and database engineer. I get recruiters asking me about financial analyst positions on a regular basis, just because one of my previous jobs, the organization had 'Financial Management' in its name

I got pitched all the time. Most of those are those accounting or auditing related positions. I guess it all start with “pwc”
