Been getting a ton of recruiter outreach messages lately, and a lot of them are attractive roles that I would never even be on a shortlist for. I'm a mid-range analyst at best.

Anyone else getting these messages too? Is the market really that thin? I find it a bit unbelievable because I spent two years unemployed and barely getting interviews prior to COVID.

It’s very situational. I myself get messages almost every other week but most of the time they can’t match my current compensations. Even for those attractive roles. So I started asking them upfront. Some are understanding most are not.
Also I even went for the interview process of one of those attractive roles. 6 steps. The recruiter ghosted me for 2-3 weeks nothing on email and in the end a generic thank you message. And it’s a very good company too. So I don’t think it’s that thin but rather the numbers have increased for screening because of remote flexibility.

My guess is that they fired a lot during the pandemic and now are reopening but the salaries are lower as well. Like I’m 15 years in marketing with a good experience but they are offering usually under 100k year NY. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Like others have mentioned outreach has increased bc of remote, and options are thin but a lot of the times the recruiters cast wide nets and end up vetting you out anyways for lack of experience, etc. etc. I’ve had this happen quite a bit as well
