I've noticed an increase in requests from recruiters to be added to my LinkedIn network, but there has been only one who actually messaged me with a specific job description for an open position. I'm not sure why recruiters even bother to join my network. They don't promote jobs or ask for my feedback on what kind of potential candidates my company/department generates.
I don't click on their profiles because I'm not actively looking to get recruited. But I have many sub-ordinates who are looking for jobs in their preferred fields and are in my call center on a temporary basis. I believe that recruiters inherently understand that customer service/call center jobs are entry-level positions and most agents won't make a career out of them. I understand the transient nature of call center agents and their pursuit of higher pay, better benefits, fame & glory, etc. It doesn't make sense to me that recruiters aren't partnering with supervisors and managers to flush out the special talents of employees stuck in these entry-level jobs.
What groups are you in?
What skills are you looking for?
What does your company produce?
Tell me something useful so I can help them achieve their professional goals.

I guess going by this study most recruiter in LinkedIn never get to personalize their profile. If this be true then it would be difficult to connect with clients.
People need to feel the personality behind the profile so they can easily communicate their needs with ease. Its important having this post exposing some crucial points online recruiters have been missing.
