Last year, I signed up on just about every job hunting website out there. HotJobs, WashingtonJobs, Monster, GodINeedAJob.com, you name it. And, when my hunt was over, I closed out my accounts. I got hosed on one deal - I actually paid $100 to have a service forward my resume everywhere.
All they did was share my resume and contact details with spammers and others who offered to, again, share my resume for a fee. What a load of donkey dung.
One of these bottomfeeder organizations continues to contact me. I've tried to unsub from their service so many times, it's ridiculous. And, yet again today, I got another message from them. It's always the same name at the bottom of the e-mails - a chick named Jessica who probably doesn't exist.
But the salutations get more and more interesting. They haven't gotten my name right once. Here is today's offering:
Based on your background and experience, we believe that you may be interested in one or more positions recently posted by our corporate clients in Maryland..."
What the hell?
That is the saddest spam I've received in ages. What strange boobery. If I didn't know it would keep me on their spamroll for years to come, I would definitely write back:
I'm desperately offended by your misspelling of my name. I wouldn't possibly accept a job with an organization that sloppy and unprofessional!
