Earlier today something ridiculous has happened and I wanted to share and ask for an advice.
Some recruitment agency called the company I work for official phone number and asked for me. I didn't expect a call nor did I advertise anywhere recently (over a year ago I posted on a few jobsites) but someone identified themselves as a recruitment agency and said that based on my SO activity they have a job offer at a really cool company etc.
Just imagine how stumped I was when I took the call while at work....
I asked how the hell they knew I work here, etc - they said from my CV... well OK but the company phone number wasn't on the CV but my direct phone number was as well as my email address. I asked why didn't he email me instead and I told him I can't have such a conversation while I am at work surrounded by other employees specially sitting near by the boss... I basically didn't want to be rude but told him nicely to just email me etc.
I am taking down my old CVs from any websites I remember posting it to..
What else can I do to stop them from calling me on my work phone (not personal cell)? That agency behaviour is unacceptable, should I try to report that somewhere?
