One recruiter was pestering me, and I was ignoring his emails... then he sent this which made me laugh:

  > I can do this all day - it's quite literally my job :)
  > Really though, we are highly interested in your background ...
  > Chat soon?

My profile used to just say "Im a really bad engineer working with technology a, b and c. Also I steal"

I don't think anybody cared about it and I always thought it was funny as shit

Until one day a recruiter specifically called it out. His subject was "looking for really really bad engineer"

Hey, we're looking for to hire someone who does technology A, who also had a penchant for larceny. Interested?

That made me lmao and really respect the tenacity of that recruiter

Well? Did the recruiter's perseverance work or not?
