Professional Recruiter?

Needed a break from writing code, so I thought that would publish my recent interaction with a “professional recruiter”. I was actually intrigued by the job, regardless of the fact they woke me up at 7 am. But seeing as how I’m currently employed, I could push back on their incompetence. But then again I do make a little money when recuirters email me.

Incredibly disrespectful, I guess unsolicited cold calling starts early in Florida? Thank goodness I wasn’t on the West Coast.

I wish you all the best of luck in finding a candidate, the pool is very small. It gets smaller when you are looking for someone with programming, analytic, communication skills, and advanced financial/investment experience. Also, it also helps write a clear job description, but silly me. I expect lousy job descriptions from offshore recruiters, but I do expect a little better from on-shore recruiters. But then again based on your Governor and my experience, I have demoted Florida to third world status.

Just an FYI and in the interest of full disclosure, this was going to be J2, cause I’m r/overemployed.  

Cheers and have a great weekend!

Apologies for calling you at 7:00 am, I am on the East Coast. Additionally, I am not trying to play games, just asking for a resume that our hiring manager had requested – while trying to get a better understanding of your Data Engineering background and “SNP”. If you would like to discuss the role and how it aligns with your skillset, that would be great! If not, I think we can agree this position might not work. Have a wonderful weekend and I hope we can work together in the future!

Best Regards,

I think we are just playing games at this point… yet I have more games than Milton Bradley?

All I ever hear about recruiters can’t find applicants, yet you decided that it was necessary to call me at 7 am in the morning? Coders don’t get up that early.

If you really want to impress your client then either send this link or the screenshots attached, because at the end of the nobody reads resumes, they would rather look at pretty little charts. This is especially the case in the financial world and SNP world as well.

Hi Chad!

Sorry for being unresponsive! I got off at 5:00 yesterday and then tried taking a look at your resume when I got home since my company blocks us from using GoogleDocs. Do you by any chance have your resume in PDF or Word Doc form? Thank you! 😊

Do we have a match here or am I just too punk rock for these suits?

Hi Chad,

Below are the answers to your questions!

Salary? – Contract to hire and we can pay around 80/hr

Understanding of datasets – Microsoft, this doesn’t make any sense? – Understanding of datasets in Microsoft SQL

Use SNP, benchmarking, should this be: Use S&P 500 benchmarking? – Correct, this is a typo on our end but should be Standard and Poor’s 500 Index
