I’ve been receiving a lot of requests lately via linkedin, and usually from recruiters. Most of these requests have been from strangers that I have never heard of. These aren’t your typical recruiter emails though. These invites are for an opportunity of a lifetime! For the most part I have ignored them.
That is until today. I decided to respond to the invitation today for a couple of reasons. Overwhelmingly because this person was already a connection and she works for a <ahem> respectable recruitment firm, if there is such a thing, and secondly, she is quite hot.
I told her that it was interesting that her email was exactly the same as three other emails I had received recently, this was the conversation that followed:
I told her that her pitch was already sounding like a pyramid scheme and that it reminded me of a scene from Garden State. Watch it, it’s hilarious:
Then she said this:
Wait. What? Did she say it’s illegal?!
My journalistic instincts kicked in immediately if not prematurely, She went on to explain that it is not illegal. By this stage I was intrigued and I’ve asked to see her presentation, but only if I am allowed to film the whole thing. She has yet to reply.
I’ll keep ya’ll posted!
