Most recruiters are managing more than 50 candidates at a time. If recruiters responded to every random inquiry, they wouldn't have time to fill jobs. That's why it's critical to reach out to them with a targeted approach.
You need to understand exactly which type of recruiter - internal, external, or executive - you're reaching out to so you can position yourself properly. Make sure that the recruiter you're approaching is appropriate for your desire role and needs.
Before you reach out to the recruiter, update your LinkedIn profile and resume, do your research about the organization and role in question, and prepare to send any materials that they might want to screen before an interview.
There are two reasons to approach a recruiter: to help them fill an existing opening or to make them aware that you're interested in future openings.
Explain what you're interested in and why. If you're a good fit for an existing role, you could get some immediate traction. If not, they may enter your information into their database for future openings.
