From time to time I get Linked In messages from recruiters “offering” me potential job opportunities. I’ve accepted that this is part and parcel of owning a Linked In profile.
However…I wanted to share this piece of recruiting gold that turned up this morning. I’ve removed the identifiable info from the recruiter (unless y’all ask me to share of course).
Hope you’re well.
I am working on a role, which suits your bg/exp.
As such I was wondering if you’re considering a career opportunity? If so, could you please provide contact details, to enable discussing further. If not, then please accept my apologies.
My reply (I work with an Alex and checked he had received the same message):
Try not copy and pasting a message next time…
…or at least make sure you address it correctly (I’m Dan, not Alex). By the way, me and Alex both found it very funny.
Is this something of interest?
Even if it was something of interest, you’re an idiot and would trust you to handle my recruitment at all. At least the audacity of the email reply gave us a little chuckle in the office. Has anyone else had a stupid recruitment experience such as this?
