I've been cold-called at my desk by a recruiter twice in the past couple years.

For one thing, I have no idea how they got my desk number (they knew my name), as that's supposed to be internal-only information, so that was an unpleasant surprise.

For another thing, I'm of that population that strongly prefers text-mode communication over phone calls.

So making an cold call to my work was a great way to get a "fuck off" and blacklist that recruiter. I wonder from what business culture they come from, and what their success rate with that method are, to make that approach seem viable.
