Recruiter SPAM

Got a job posting mass emailed to me today, here’s an excerpt:

“Our records show based on your resume, which was imported into our system recently that you are an experienced IT professional whose background may possibly align to the senior level position we have been retained to work on…” [Emphasis added by me.]

Wow, they didn’t even try to pretend that they read my resume or sent me a personal email, pretty ballsy, and of course the job had nothing to do with my skill set. It’s also hard to imagine any quality senior level candidates responding to such a faceless, generic email. To any recruiters who might be reading, this sort of email gets marked as SPAM.
