4424 "spam" email messages received by 460 software engineers over a period of about 900 days.
This averages out to 5 spam per day. Today 'they' received 7, according to the site. So, they are averaging 1 spam email from a recruiter every 93 man-days. These guys are claiming to receive "so much spam email from recruiters" that they have to keep track of it (and claiming 30 job offers a month).
The math shows that they are obviously just lying. They are exaggerating by a factor of almost 100x the amount of spam they are receiving. Keep this in mind next time a software engineer complains about spam. He probably means he's badly in need of a lot more of it.
That is awesome data Nicholas. I wish you had this same information for Primary Care providers. I would be interested in seeing where they fall into this mix. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Tim. My understanding is that Healthcare people are getting recruited about daily. I have 3 healthcare recruiters working next to me and they say candidates pretty much get contacted every day (although they rarely have an 'attitude' about it, which we see with software people). I think that healthcare people are also getting paid a bit more, perhaps because they are a little less maladjusted and know how to 'play the system' better.
