This is something that I used to be good at but recently I have been falling behind. When I say this, I mean that I haven't replied to a LinkedIn message for a few months now.
There are so many now that I can't even bring myself to start clearing out the backlog.
Really I am just being lazy. But, in doing so, am I annoying or hurting the feelings of the recruiter messaging me. Furthermore, am I doing damage to myself if I ever need to find a new position and might need help from some recruiters.
What are your opinions?
Do you answer every message sent your way?
Do you do it straight away?
If you are a recruiter, it would be interesting to hear your opinion since you're also affected by this.
