1. I might have more than one job that matches your skill set/location/seniority than just the one I'm advertising. It's best to have a phone conversation to discuss that. It only takes 5 minutes. If it's not a fit, but I know what your skill set/preferences are, the next time a job comes along that matches I know who to call first. If you just say no to one specific post, I won't know anything about you to follow up with the job you really want.

2. My client information is valuable to me. If I give every detail out in public forum, another recruiter only has to connect a few dots to go poach them from me.

3. Recruiters generally have so many people to contact that it's most efficient to put out a quick invitation out there. Here's the core skill set, are you interested/in the market? Let's have a chat so I can learn more about you.

Hmm, those are some really good points, especially #1.

I can't say I agree 100% with all of them, but I understand where you're coming from, and what the concerns are (especially #2!).

Thanks for sharing that, it was enlightening.
