[Rant] LinkedIn Recruiters..

Dear Steven,

Apologies for the direct approach, but after reading your LinkedIn profile I just had to show you this perfect oppertunity at one of my clients!
My client is a young/dynamic/rockstar/IT-ninja/growing/etc. organisation who’s growing fast and is looking for a young/dynamic/rockstar/IT-ninja/superstar/talented [INSERT JOB TITLE].

Now I was wondering if you value career growth, more money, a brand-new car and yourself? Because if you do, you are the one they need.

Let’s talk about this offer over a cup of coffee sometime, I’ll hear from you soon! 🙂

Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

It seems like it’s hunting season again for IT recruiters all over the Netherlands, because these kind of messages have become a daily occurrence.

Of course, spelling my name wrong and showing me a job offer that has nothing to do with my experience (I’ve even received an offer for a job as an Oracle Administrator…. really?) is a clear giveaway that they spam multiple people with a copy+paste message.

*Sigh* .. anyway, at least I have a good idea of my market value thanks to these people.
