If youre lucky, youve had recruiters reach out via email  or LinkedIn.

If you happen to be looking for, or open to, a new job or  opportunity, the response is obvious: When can we get on the  phone?

But if youre happy in your current position and not looking,  what do you do?


If youre lucky, youve had recruiters reach out via email  or LinkedIn. If you happen to be looking for, or open to, a new job or  opportunity, the response is obvious: When can we get on the  phone?

But if youre happy in your current position and not looking,  what do you do?

In  a LinkedIn post, Monika  Arora, an HR assistant manager at Rhiti Sports Management in  New Delhi, India, highlighted a story that might give you some  idea.


After Arora reached out to a potential candidate about a role  shes trying to fill, she got the following response:

"Hey Monika, thanks for reaching out, but I am not looking for a  new position at the moment. However willing to hear nonetheless  and see whether I could recommend good folks for the position.  Let me know whether you still want to chat!"


Arora wrote:

"We now have a call booked in to speak about the job,  discuss the market, find out if there are people in her network  that she may be able to recommend and to talk about her own  career motivations for potential future opportunities. I think  everyone should be open to a bit of good old fashioned networking  like this! Build bridges, dont burn them!"


Scott Wintrip, author of "High  Velocity Hiring: How to Hire Top Talent in an Instant" and  founder of Wintrip Consulting  Group, says the best way to respond to a recruiter or hiring  managers inquiry for a position that doesnt interest you is  gratitude and honesty, followed by a question.


"First, thank the recruiter for their interest by saying  something like, I appreciate that youve identified me as a  potential candidate. Im honored," he told Business  Insider. "Then, give an honest and simple response about  your interest — Im not looking to make a change right now, or  Im looking for something different. Lastly, ask who may make a  good referral and how those individuals can reach the recruiter  or manager."

Wintrip said recruiters and HR managers are often ignored, which  means the people who dont ignore them could stick in their  minds. "They will remember the extremes — those who are  exceptionally rude or helpful," he said. "Being helpful is  like money in the bank, earning interest and eventually paying  dividends in the future."


And whatever you do, dont be rude. "You never know who they know  or what they may be able to offer in the future," Wintrip  said. "You can always say what you mean without saying it  mean. An honest and kind approach helps you build a community  that will be there when you need it."
