This week I was contacted by a recruiter with curious language in the email:
either I'm way off, or you're a really good match for this position.
The binary nature of the statement was very curious. The position had some very specific requirements, so most of my colleagues would only be a partial match as was I.
Is the nature of this statement some kind of sales/motivation technique?
It turns out that the position was a terrible match, and probably reflects the recruiters poor reading comprehension. This might explain the silly statement. First off the job was located in a town in which I do not live and is not commutable. Secondly, the verbiage said an active top secret security clearance was required. I've never held that level, and I have no active clearance. My resume indicates this.
In the end I marked it as spam as I do with many of these silly recruitment requests.
