Why are recruiters constantly messaging me about Senior roles when I'm still a junior? Like can they not read my LinkedIn? Or is there something here that I'm missing?

No you’re not missing anything. I’m not too sure what’s with that, but I guess a lot of recruiters have pretty aggressive KPIs so they contact a lot of people without spending time on reviewing the CVs, inmail messages I think are sent automatically to people who fit certain criteria, also many might not be educated in the sector they’re hiring for. I get messages that are completely unaligned with my experience all the time. I would say just ignore these messages or if the company/role sounds interesting and recruiter is from a credible agency you can always respond but be instantly upfront about your experience.

LMAO, I don't think I am. Definitely need more experience. But I do have a history of undervalueing myself

I’m director level and they message me about senior designer roles too. They don’t look, they don’t read. They would however sell their grandmother to get a placement.

LMFAOOOOOO

Added years of experience can sometimes be thrown in with internships or any previous roles at times. More junior recruiters that rely on filters can accidentally reach out to those a bit more junior than intended. If using a separate tool things can be confusing with cross platform filters.
