An executive search firm principal (let’s call him Jack) searches for and sources potential prospects via LinkedIn
Jack finds and contacts a potential prospect (let’s call her Jenny) through inMail
In his inMail message Jack introduces himself, his search firm, and briefly describes his client’s opportunity to Jenny
Jenny politely replies to Jack that she would be open to discussing the opportunity and provides her contact info and availability for a call
Jack calls Jenny the next day and leaves a voicemail and also emails her the official job description
Jenny is unable to return the call by end of day (for Jack’s time zone – 3 hours ahead), so she emails Jack to thank him for the additional information and let him know her availability for a call the next day
The following day, Jack replies to Jenny’s email and requests her resume
Jenny thinks Jack is a JackHole
Jenny’s recap (recruiter rant) of the scenario:
Resume THIS you typical jerkface recruiter! You found me on LinkedIn, liked what you saw enough to contact me, presumably to speak with me, so why do you suddenly need a resume in order to do that?
Don’t jack me around Jack!
(BTW: Jenny's LI profile is comprehensive, so her resume would be redundant at this stage)
