It's absolutely okay if it went well. Perhaps do it in a few days. No idea what most of folks above are talking about that it's a mistake.

I did it after the recruiter sent an email to set up an interview. he looked at my linkedin file and we had a great interview. But it seems lots of people here don’t like it. So to be safe don’t do it!

Dear Peanut paying companies (TCS especially), don’t you have some basic manner in valuing the precious time of Candidates?

Don’t you ashamed of yourself calling as a Recruiter? These are basic manners/commonsense, which you guys are unaware of!!!
