In Automatically detecting and replying to recruiter spam, I discussed an approach to automatically classifying and detecting unsolicited recruiter messages. Since then:
- I received a message from a recruiter, which was automatically replied to by my recruiter bot. This led me to leave my old job and accept a new offer at around twice the total compensation.
Support responding via Gmail, I got the bot to successfully reply to LinkedIn emails, and therefore send replies on my behalf on LinkedIn.
- However, I believe this to be counterproductive. In my understanding, LinkedIn keeps an activity/response timeliness score for users to determine if a given user is likely to be open to new opportunities on LinkedIn. Automatically responding to LinkedIn messages would raise this score. As a consequence, this positive feedback loop has caused me to receive more LinkedIn messages than ever before! So I disabled auto-replies to LinkedIn emails.
