Proper Notice

Attention all headhunters:

Please kindly stop calling me on my work phone, during work hours, to recruit me. I will not engage in a discussion about leaving my company to join your incredibly vague and "exciting" project when I am on company time. Do not talk about how you "saw your information on Linked In"; we both know that my phone number is not in my profile. I will not discuss this exciting opportunity with you. I will not refer you to other qualified candidates. There is a time and a place for these discussions and it is known as "email". Please join the rest of us in the 21st century and learn how to use it. If you do not have my address, then you have no reason whatsoever to be contacting me.

Thank you. Have a nice day.


  1. Great blog post! This is the kind of writing we're looking for at my exciting new project; perhaps we can speak via telephone tomorrow morning to discuss the prospect of your coming on board?

  2. Damn, someone beat me to the joke!
