Recruiters and Blind Emails
As I was catching up on email tonight, I noticed an email from a recruiter and had to read it. Then I had to wipe my eyes and make sure I was reading this correctly:
Recruiters: Please, please, please research who you are sending these to before you send them.
While I would normally have ignored the email and deleted it, I couldn’t. I had to reply. I warned him ahead of time that my resume isn’t suitable – not with my experience. However, I work with some amazing apprentices at The Software Guild, with bootcamps graduating throughout the year, and I’m sure some of them would be interested in this position.
As much as I really wanted to delete this, I couldn’t. My apprentices are on my mind a lot, especially when it comes to job placement – much like a great recruiter, I like matching my apprentices with the right contacts when the opportunity is right. So we’ll see how this plays out.
