So, a recruiter called me this morning around 10a. I work a FT job here in MI. So it Really irritates me when a headhunter calls out of the blue to discuss their recent "Opportunity" that I would be a "Great Fit for". I told her (not so politely) to email me and i'll respond. Here is that corrosponence.

Geetha, I operate on a multi strike system, And you struck out. Allow me to list how you have failed...
1.) You were Almost impossible to understand on the phone, If you can't effectively communicate with me, how can i be sure you have all the correct details for the gig?
2.) You called me during the work day without warning. I'm sure my current employer would LOVE to know that i'm speaking to a recruiter on their dime.
3.) You failed at proper email grammar. The term "Gr8" may be cute with your kids or that guy from the club, but for a professional email, it is a total fail.
Sorry, and better luck with your next opportunity.
