Some recruiters are really aggravating. Yesterday I applied for a contract job thru a site that makes you enter a text resume (don't even get me started on that disaster), then apply for jobs by clicking a link. In other words, I don't have any control over what the recipient sees.
Yesterday I got a note from one:
Your resume wasn't attached. Please send it in MS Word format.
I could see the generated email at the bottom of her note. It contained my text resume....
In this day and age, with a new worm/virus spreading thru MS Word documents every day, I can't believe someone is saying, "Hello, random stranger, please send me email with the most common vector attached, so I can click on it." I replied saying I don't send MS Word attachments thru email and sent a PDF instead.
Yes, I do want this gig, and it's so annoying to have know-nothings guarding the gates.
