I would love your input on a conundrum that I'm having. The majority of my work is with boards on CEO transitions. While I don't think of myself as a "recruiter," that doesn't mean that other people don't. I'm getting a few messages a day to touch base about folks careers - how they should update their LinkedIn profiles, where they should be looking for jobs, etc. It's my nature to make myself available - answering their LinkedIn notes, setting up calls, but the number of requests I'm getting is beyond my bandwidth. Let me be clear - these are not active candidates for the roles that I'm recruiting for, rather these are folks that are merely in the job market.
Have you figured out how to handle this in your own practice? I expect to have an influx with workforce shifts due to the pandemic, and I want to be helpful but have boundaries on my own capacity.
