If you are reading this, chances are you sent me a LinkedIn connect request. I do not connect with recruiters on LinkedIn. The reason is obvious: to protect my clients and connections.
Unfortunately, while a few (perhaps one or two I have met in my professional life) are honest, industrious and respectful with their candidates, most of the headhunter firms have a very poor track record. It is not my fault that things got so horrible as this in the HR/recruiting business.
So please do not feel that refusing to link up on LinkedIn as personal. It was a business choice. If you still need to talk, please send us a note at email@example.com. Please do not send me an invitation – you will be blocked and reported as spam.
