Hate when the happens! I think a big part of the problem is that some recruiters just send out a generic message/email to dozens of candidates. So you think you are just one of a few being shortlisted when in fact they are talking to hundreds of candidates. Its easy to spot a spam message on LinkedIn though if you put a emoticon in front of your name and then you get a message that is like...
"Hi 💻 Andrew,
Hope you're well,
I am working with a Government Team who are upgrading their flagship website and need a frontend developer to join the small team."
If it was genuine and personal then there would be no emoticon 😂
Haha the thing is it was sent to my email - and looked very much directed at me, but I guess it makes sense that they are sending out to a list of people. It's just very hard mentally and very frustrating and annoying
