    Getting an interview is so much easier when the recruiter reaches out to you and asks for your resume.

      Sent cv to Twitter, got unnoticed for 3 months. Sent message to recruiter and was interviewing next week. The question is that once many people will start messaging, then even this will not work as it helped me to differentiate myself.

      Will recruiters tend to suppress the compensation if the job is obtained through them?

      No, why would they.

      My impression is that recruiters do not help increase your compensation to make it easier for you to be hired. It is more commission for them to get multiple candidates hired with less than average pay than to get fewer candidates hired but at higher compensations

      I thought that recruiters on LinkedIn keep their inboxes closed to unwanted messages? Hm sounds like something that should exist.

    No brainer if you’re a SWE. Will get spammed with opportunities (good and bad)

    Definitely useful. When I turn on that "interested in outside opportunities" switch, recruiters flood my inbox. Not all from places I'd like to work, but if you turn on this switch 1-2 months before you aim to interview, you'll probably get some good places. I've gotten Google, Salesforce, and Grab, to name a few.

    Premium services are kinda annoying, but I upgrade when I want to reach out to recruiters myself.

    However LinkedIn’s timeline can be utterly useless because it’s filled with self-titled gurus and life coaches. I tried unfollowing people but this just seems to be the culture in LinkedIn
