My LinkedIn feed....

5%: current/past colleagues posting about their work
15%: postings about jobs
80%: recruiters high fiving each other, whining about candidates that don't get back to them or don't like how aggressive they are, or posting ridiculously generic, pointless life/work/job search advice

Maybe I just need to unfollow these people, the recruiter circle jerk that LinkedIn has become is too much to handle...

      Because could anyone honestly solicit them a better opportunity where theyโ€™re happier, better utilized, and paid more?

      We have an internal group "$%&* Recruiters say" where we post all the silly recruitment [in]mails we get. If a recruiter would put some personalized effort into the mails instead of the same junk to their filtered search perhaps we would reply and tell you why the offer was uninteresting. Often these are things that could be addressed with more info.

      Oh yeah, that's a whole separate rant. I'm a senior at Microsoft that's worked at multiple top companies - do you think I really want to go work at some podunk enterprise job writing their vb web app just because .NET is on my list of skills??

    Itโ€™s only good for finding job opportunities. The feed is inspirational messages and pointless fluff.
