One of my contacts shared this vent with me. Thought it pretty much sums up some of the lazy, sloppy, clueless types that somehow found their way into the recruiting realm.
I honestly have a ton of recruiters that contact me, the majority are very bad at their job and I would never work with them but this specific recruiter keeps sending me positions where I do not fulfill what is identified in the job description and/or requirements, so after being nice on about a half a dozen of these emails for jobs I am not qualified for, I snapped and sent them this snotty response:
Thank you for contacting me about this opportunity, but I do not fulfill the position requirements and Farawayland is not a reasonable daily commute, being approximately 90 miles from my home. Although I congratulate you on your eagerness to place individuals in new opportunities, I would suggest actually doing a quick review of a résumé and not solely relying on a keyword search before sending out bulk emails to individuals whose résumé information you have hoarded and likely dumped into a bulk database, as well as doing a simple map on mapquest (or similar resource) of the organization's location and the "home" location indicated on an individual's résumé or posting (if provided) for you to be taken seriously as a recruiter. Once again, I thank you for contacting me but I am definitely not the right candidate for this opportunity. Additionally, since I have politely told to you six times that I am not a fit for positions you have taken absolutely no effort to confirm I am a match for, I also suggest you take my résumé and place it in your virtual circular file. Please do not contact me any further!
Makes me think about how frustrating it is to just want to enjoy a fresh car wash for a few days, and along comes the angry birds splattering their turds. Ruins everything and gives all birds a bad name.
