Email from recruiter:
I am ___ _______ I work for VMWare.I found you on the internet. I work in the CPD group Continuing Product Development team.I wanted to see if you are open to new job opportunities or you know someone that is.I am looking for Individuals that have very strong skills as a Software Engineering Manager with strong linux packaging.If you are interested or know some one that you could refer, I would look forward in hearing from you.
So, each sentence on its own line. Punctuation and capitalization errors.
I had been contacted by VMWare a couple of times before (here and here), so I knew what they were about. I had no doubt that I could do well there. Ah, but the key point… I wrote back:
I am located in Austin, TX. I assume that this opportunity is in Silicon Valley? I am not actually interested in moving back anytime soon.
and never heard from that recruiter again…
