I have successfully got calls from most of the companies I have applied to (either reaching out to a recruiter on LinkedIn or applying on their website) except few startups I'd love to work at. Recruiters at these companies doesn't respond on LinkedIn.

I was wondering if anyone on Blind would be willing to refer me. We can have a quick call to make sure that I qualify for the role.

    You could be reaching out to recruiters who don’t support the vertical that you’re looking for work in. Look at their profiles. If that doesn’t work then target the sourcers, it’s their job to find candidates while recruiters are more focused on closing candidates. Sourcers will respond.

      Of course, I'm reaching out to technical recruiters only. I see their profile and add a note when I send a connection request. Some of them accept the request but never respond back

      That’s the prob. Skip them and reach out to sourcers.

      Oh I see. You mean sourcers at a third party company?

      No sourcers at the company you’re targeting. Thats their job title so I’m sure they’re not hard to find.
