I haven't been a consultant for as long as some of you, maybe 7 years or so,
but it seems to me that the quality of solicitations from recruiters has
progressively gotten worse in the last couple of years or so.  I've gotten
job req's from free email accounts (yahoo, msn, hotmail), and the grammar
and language has gotten progressively worse as well.  Granted, it's common
and accepted for the initial call to be fielded by a recruiter or intern who
isn't knowledgeable about every IT job out there, but come on!  The
following solicitation seemed so absurd to me that I've been saving it as an
example of the worse recruitment attempt out there.  It seriously gave me a
giggle.  I'd love to see some more examples out there, I need a good laugh.
