There already are some contents concerning "executive recruiters". (Like the podcast March 2006 -- I liked it).
However, I'd like to hear some opinions about the following question:
Do you recommed to "socialize" with recruiters in a social network, if they ask?
If I would add a recruiter to my contacts, every other of my contacts gets informed about that "news". For example colleagues, directs, my bosses or even HR-people.
Furthermore, recruiters can browse all my contacts. Its their job to find new potential candidates (e.g. my directs) for their recruitment.
What do you think?
Best (christmassy) greetings
