A recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn a couple of days back. I responded that I'm interested and would like to learn more while passing on my contact number and time slots to call me. She didn't respond to that message but went ahead asking for my expected salary. 🙄🙄 After responding that I'd like to know more first before I can give out the salary range....boom she ghosted me.

I can clearly see how these recruiters half ass their job. They are least interested in helping the candidate (who they voluntarily reached out to) or know more about what they want first.

Remember, recruiters work for the companies, not the candidates. You are products they are selling to their company (or companies if they are an external search firm with multiple companies as clients).

Depending on the type of recruiter (in-house, contract, agency, specialty, etc.) the experience can vary widely. Sounds like you dodged a bullet here.

I've been on the job market too and I've actually had many positive experiences with recruiters lately to my surprise. There are some outliers but don't let one bad experience discourage you. There are some lovely recruiters out there

Same here. Recruiter reached out to me, asked me a bunch of questions (including salary) in a half hour call, then set another interview with himself, didn't show up to said interview and voilà ghosted

Be happy you dodged a bullet. This person is unprofessional. A simple reply with: your salary expectations do not meet what we are offering. Would have worked.

Curious what y’all are doing to get these hits from recruiters?

🔥 headline, summary or just great exp?

No interesting summary. No incredible headline.

Basic experience (I have licenses in my license category). I have the job experience to match the roles they are trying to fill. Basically in the basket of experienced hires.

And that's pretty much it.
