Wanted: Intelligent Recruiters

(Disclaimer upfront: no, I’m not at all interested in a new job, I’m quite happy where I am right now)

This week, I had two contacts with recruiters:

– The first one called me in the evening and started to ask me if I was the one doing SAP, as there were 3 others with the same name in the phone book. He then dropped three company names and asked if I was interested.

– The second one emailed me and offered a 4 month PHP developer job. As I have no clue what PHP developers do, this wasn’t for me, either.

I have to say, I’m baffled by how un-professional these people are. It’s really hard NOT to find out what exactly I’m doing, and how to contact me. I’m blogging, I’m in multiple social networks – how hard can it be, really…?

I appreciate the effort, but please – do your homework. It’s real easy nowadays.
