A bewildered recruiter


I got an email yesterday from a recruiter on LinkedIn via Inmail, which I normally treasure. Here’s how the email begins…

Hi Carsten,

I hope you’re well.

You were recommended to me (most highly) this morning by someone who used to work with you at ******* and I happen to have a role that matches your skill set.

Looked good so I replied…

Hi ****,

Well, why don’t you tell who recommended me, and we can have a chat?

Here’s the pathetic reply…

Hi Carsten,

Thanks for coming back to me. The chap who gave me your name told us to keep his name confidential as he wasn’t sure if you were looking for a new role or not. Sorry!

Shall I send the spec?

So the person recommending me most highly, wouldn’t let me know who he is? 😂😂😂 What a joke…

Here’s my reply…

Don’t bother mate, it’s all bullshit, so go elsewhere with your crap.
