So today I opened my email and found another email from a recruiter who clearly did not look at my resume or any details about me. Here is the email (with PII removed):
My name is [redacted], I’m a Technical Recruiter for [redacted]. I’m reaching out because, I believe your professional experience and background is a great fit for a Sr. Business Analyst role I currently have open with a Fortune financial institution in [redacted]. The client is looking to fill this position as soon as possible, I look forward to hearing from you!
We do offer a $500 dollar cash referral bonus for anyone you refer who gets the job, if you’re not interested yourself!
Best Regards, [redacted]
So the position is for a Senior Business Analyst for a "Fortune financial institution". I've seen many variations on this -- Fortune 500, Fortune 100, Fortune 50 -- but never just a "Fortune" company. So if the recruiter had actually looked at my resume or whatever profile he found from whatever job website I'm on, he would see that I briefly held a 6-month contract Business Analyst position as a trainee, not even as a full fledged BA. This was in 2015, and I haven't held any further Business Analyst positions since then. Clearly, I am not going to be qualified for a Senior Business Analyst position.
I receive many emails like this where it is obvious that the recruiter is just spamming the position to as many people as possible in case something sticks.
But my question is, what is the best method for reacting to this sort of email from a recruiter who has not reviewed my profile or resume?
I am not interested in even attempting to apply for the position, and I'm fairly new to the area (moved here at the end of the aforementioned BA contract), so I wouldn't have any referrals either. I've typically just ignored these emails, but should I be responding in some way to preserve some semblance of a professional relationship for future job searches?
@MonkeyZeus Thanks for the dupe target, but I would say this is different enough to remain independent. That link is about the same recruiter sending multiple emails about the same job, whereas this question is about receiving large amounts of recruiter emails from multiple recruiters and companies for positions that are not well-suited for the intended email recipient. I believe this question has received a strong amount of good answers enough that it can be helpful for others -- even expanding beyond the intended focus of US workers.
