Hey McKinsey Fish! Is there any real luck of applying to a job on the website? I applied to an implementation role that I know I would be qualified for but without any referral. Been a few weeks so was just hoping to atleast see a rejection 😁

Yes—I applied online, no referral

Thanks! I will continue waiting 🤞🏻

I applied through linkedin without referral. I guess a specialist role maybe easier for non-conventional background like me though.

Responding to LinkedIn InMail - Yay or Nay

I was recently contacted by a recruiter via LinkedIn with a cookie cutter template. Thing is, the content is spot on for the type of position I would jump ship for.

Right now I have excited upcoming projects in my current role. If I were to exit in the future, it would be for exactly what the recruiter is offering me.

If I respond back with gratitude and to see if I can contact her in the future, am I stepping on my own feet & wasting her time?
