* LinkedIn Recruiters

The downside of LinkedIn.

This week, I passed 300 connections on LinkedIn. Shortly thereafter, I received multiple unsolicited contacts from intellectual property recruiters. (I founded Clock Tower Law Group, which specializes in patent law and trademark law.) This is one of the downsides of LinkedIn: recruiter spam.

I have nothing against recruiters. In fact, a good retainer recruiter is worth his/her weight in gold. But a recruiter who works on contingency is a dime a dozen.

If you are a corporate executive, or if you want to be one, then you should purchase the book “Rites of Passage at $100,000 to $1 Million+: Your Insider’s Lifetime Guide to Executive Job-Changing and Faster Career Progress in the 21st Century” by John Lucht. “Rites of Passage” explains how the recruiting business works and why the difference between retainer recruiters and contingency recruiters matters.

And no, I’m not looking for a job, but thanks for asking.
