|<Yet Another Clueless Tech Recruiter>|
After you're done laughing, maybe read http://37signals.com/svn/posts/2598-why-are-technical-recruiters-so-clueless. I also wrote a piece on what I think about Groupon's business that you might find interesting: http://shortlogic.com/post/6142108636/groupon-ipo-pass-on-this-deal
Have a nice day!
(what I sent him back)
I've had precisely one job interview through a recruiter, for a small security testing outfit. The interviewer constantly referred to the recruiter as "The Car Salesman". I asked him why they used him if he was so aweful and his response was the guy was the least worst they'd come across, but he was still awful.
I once had one ring me, who seemed to think that UML and XML were the same kind of thing. I declined the opportunity.
"Look, I have no idea what the fuck I'm asking here and I don't really know anything about you even though you seem to be well respected here on github.com. I'd like to persuade you into considering our mediocre and doomed business, because let's be frank – we are totally fucked – we are Groupon after all, and we used to be the hottest startup in the world. That has to still carry some weight, but, again, I have no fucking clue who you are or what you do. I did notice "Rails" was something you have mentioned doing, we do that, so hopefully I've been convincing enough to persuade you into taking a sail on this sinking ship.
We're all going to die."
my goodness, this dude just landed himself right on the frying pan. Is this s a joke or what? somebody needs to even ask, how much are they trying to offer and what position will he fill? lol
Just imagine @dhh Junior Rails Developer Groupon, hahahahahahahahaha. shit this is the Joke of the century. I'll bet my entire balls on it.
