I receive many contacts from recruiters on LinkedIn.
Some of them genuinely ask if I know somebody who could be interested in the position(s) offered, and they sometimes mention that I could get a commission if I refer somebody who gets hired.
I find asking several contacts personally pretty much time-consuming. I prefer to advertise the position on my feed and request to send a dm if interested (or get to the recruiter directly ?).
Is it something wise/ethical/socially accepted also considering my local market (Switzerland)?
I am employed (not in HR and/or recruitment) and have other projects outside work (publicly displayed on my profile and approved by my employer).
What concerns me in specific is:
- Whether this may impact my employment/employer (not operating in the recruitment / head hunting branch).
- Whether this could be seen in a wrong way from other recruiters in my contacts.
