Oh wow... And I thought that ones I'd seen when looking last year were bad.
Run Flee Hide!!!  Or wait, maybe this could be an attempt to hire someone
who's primary Language is not English?  This is just *bad* though.  It seems
more to me that they are trying to phish for personal information (used to
be - God I hope people don't do this anymore - people would put as much of
their personal info on a resume' as would fit, to include SSN)... I was
reading something on Slashdot yesterday about how people are doing things
like this to steal address information for identity theft or illegal
immigrants to work in the US.  Be careful out there guys.  My rule of thumb
is, don't submit your resume' to someone you haven't *spoken* to.

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.
