Or rather, be the 1st to respond.
To have a better shot at a new opportunity.
Recruiters often stick and move all day long.
Usually, the 1st qualified applicant that responds starts the conversation and possibly the submission process.
Sure, you might get ghosted, ignored, and whatever else, you can’t control that.
Control what you can control, which is your promptness.
Maybe some Vanilla Ice lyrics will help:
“Quick to the point to the point no faking
You’re cooking those recruiters like a pound of bacon”
