A not so conventional recruitment email.

December 2, 2004

This has got to be the strangest receuitment email I have received in recent times. I wonder if he honestly expects his statement in the first paragraph will prompt people to consider the offer more legitimate.

_“Please excuse the impersonal and frankly spam nature of this email but wanted to tell you about a permanent role I’m presently recruiting for (to develop music software), salary c.£35k. Read on if interested….</p>

My client requires several VC++ software developers to join their London-based team working on music software projects. To apply, you must have good experience of C++ development on Windows, expecially including component development COM/ActiveX. This must combine with excellent problem-solving skills and an ability to work well in a team to a tight delivery schedule. Must have a demonstrable external interest in music. Other relevant skills include computer music or audio experience, and advanced musical knowledge.

Based in London
