Recruiters: is it weird to reach out on LinkedIn directly after applying for a position to discuss a fit?

Not weird at all. Just make it short and sweet and for the love of all that is holy, if you copy/paste a message, please make sure to update the recruiter’s name and the agency name.

Not weird to flag your interest / try to get their attention, but instead of asking to “hop on a call”, meet, grab coffee, etc., mention that you’d be happy to discuss if there’s an interest in your background.

Im very respectful and non-pushy about it. I just feel if I don’t do this I will never hear back.

Invest by MarketCap Crypto Strategy Ok all letme know what you think of this strategy....its sad but the top 50 S&P stocks hav outperformed every single hedge fund out there managed by impressive Ivy League Managers. (I say lets hang these useless financial wizard banksters)..Follow this same line of thinking and apply to Cryptos...I suspect some survival of the fittest theory working here. ....All you have to do is invest in the top 10 crypto currencies by Market Cap and hold your position for short to mid term. Long term ie 5 to 10 years, I feel this market will mature and all the bubbles will deflate. To see top ten either go to Cryptomarketcap or go install the Crypto Tracker app from play store...As of 12/26/17... Top Cryptos by market cap:1. BTC. 2.ETH 3.Btc cash 4. Ripple xrp 5.LTC 6.
