Do you have the skills that tech companies need? If you have the skills, and emphasize them in your LinkedIn, then the contacts will come (at least that was my experience). However if you’ve spent your time at the firm obsessing over utilization, doing proposals and white papers, and generally focusing on the next year-end instead of working to increase your intrinsic value, then it’s going to be tougher.

And hopefully into tech. How do you manage your linkedin profile to get attention from recruiters from companies (dont necessarily have to be FAANG but just the industry in general)

Change your industry on your profile. If you also enable the 'looking for a job' button on LinkedIn, you can customize what you're looking for to hopefully better filter through the right channels.

I enabled that "looking for a job" option and immediately got spammed by a bunch of scrub recruiters. Should I be following up with all them?

LOL, D2. I actually agree with your approach. I happened to focus on white papers, utilization, and year end, and exited to Tech.

I do mostly think I got lucky though.
