Getting less recruiter emails

I used to get emails from recruiters every now and then, but the recent 1-2 years it has been decreased. Is it the market or me?

And never got email from Netflix.

How do you apply for jobs other than being approached by recruiters? I have emails that I ignored two years ago, can I still reply? Would that look bad?

    At 330 TC surely you are unaffordable. I too get no interest from recruiters, but it's because I work a dead end job making one-eighth what you do.

    In which area are you working on? Cloud, ML and AI are popular these days. Kernel, web seevice etc would not get many contacts. Also, Software engineer 2 is the highest demand.

      Mainly backends and infra. What is software engineer 2?

      Below senior level. For senior and above, they tend to look at matching experiences hence less contact (more if you work at hot area).

    My guess is also that you working for google makes you less approachable by a lot of companies. I mean there is only few who could beat what you make at Google
