I just received my first job invitation, through LinkedIn – from a recruiter looking for a front-end developer who is willing to relocate to Germany and work for a bunch of apparently cool bio.scientists. He uses phrases like: “No doubt I am recruiter number 101 to promise you the dream role…bla bla bla…. what if I could say….actually I know these guys, I have known them for 4+ years….” or “I can honestly say if there is even 1% of you open to a new role, than let’s chat.”
Well, that caught my attention! I mean, it’s a little too casual even for my standards, but he clearly tries to make the job interesting to me and clearly wants me to get in touch.
To compare that, I want to paste in some snippets of InMail I received over the last years of recruiters trying to find anyone willing to take the “exciting new opportunity” (= boring, poorly paid CS role) with them.
