Received an LinkedIn message yesterday from a headhunter about a job that is very similar to mine (in title - I didn't get much detail about the job description) asking if I was interested or if I could refer someone. My guess is that she wasn't referred to me - she just saw my profile and contacted me.
I've listened to the podcasts on working with recruiters, but I wanted some opinions on how much of those points are relevant considering that she wasn't really referred to me, she just fished me out of the pile it would seem.
BTW - I checked out the agency she is with and it seems to be a very generic exec. recruiting firm with no particular specialty.
