Ew…job hunting spam

Posted in Life on September 9th, 2005

Excerpt from an email I received today:

I am contacting you today via your on-line resume and I was wondering if you would be interested in an opportunity to work with Brand-X Insurance and Financial Services by building your own Brand-X Agency. I am looking for a few business minded individuals who have the desire for personal growth, career fulfillment and financial success blah blah blah blah

Dear Salesfeeb-
I appreciate the fact that it took nearly every neuron you posess to find the email address on my resume, but I really have to ask how it could possibly have occurred to you that a techie such as myself would be even the slightest bit interested in devolving into a lower life form by becoming an insurance salesperson?

Since I have no interest in becoming a sales person, you sending me this email with no invitation to do so or any prior business between us classifies the email as SPAM. Not only is it the bane of my existence, but in some regions it is illegal and punishable by severe fines. In others, we will simply hunt you down and publicly flog you, because this kind of stupidity really needs to be more painful.

Please refrain from sending these “opportunities” to me or any other IT person in the future. It is a waste of bandwidth, a waste of my time, and a waste of your time as well.
