I know they’re just doing their jobs, but headhunters (job recruiters) can be some of the most dehumanizing people I’ve ever had to deal with. Because of that, I like to have a little fun at their expense whenever possible. Here’s a recent email exchange:
Headhunter: I had emailed you in the past about Medical Collector opportunities available in [your] area. I wanted to reach out to connect with you – [these people are constantly “reaching out”; don’t they ever just call or talk?] – and see if you or someone in your network might be interested in a similar role in the area with a growing Collections/Billing company.
My response: Just so you know, I hope to NEVER be in a position where I have to take a crappy job like this. Harassing mostly good hardworking people on behalf of greedy, mostly undeserving corporations? No thanks.
Somehow I don’t think they’ll be emailing me anymore. 🙂
