Real Recruiter InMails

to A Fictional LinkedIn Candidate

During a two year experiment, our team monitored the outreach from Recruiters to a FICTIONAL passive candidate we created on LinkedIn. Our team knew that demographically, our fictional Jane Doe – a female Java Developer with experience at big-name companies – would be in high demand to hungry recruiters. What we didn’t anticipate was the nearly 300 messages and job offers from recruiters at Fortune 500 companies. 

In this exclusive report we provide a breakdown and analysis of some of the worst recruiter “pickup lines” and InMails we received during this period. Are you making these same mistakes?
