More headhunter email

I got pinged by a headhunter again today. This happened last month for the first time in a couple of years, but I guess the job market is heating up again.

Dear Michael:

I apologize for dropping into your inbox unannounced.

I prefer a proper introduction as I am a consultant based

in Westport, CT and wonder whether you might entertain

a role as a development lead on Microsoft's new next-gen

search engine team. Of course, this would involve a move

to Redmond . . .(Are you based in Santa Monica?)

If you are interested in learning more, simply forward an

updated resume and detail a window or two of availability

for a brief phone conference.

I look forward to hearing from you.


Krista B...

Wesport, CT

Another well-written cold call message (aside from the “Westport” typo in the signature). I’m not really interested in relocating to Seattle, but it’s sure interesting to hear about our competitor’s strategy, however. 🙂
