I am writing to introduce myself and see if you would be interested in talking with me.
My name is [redacted] and I am in Candidate Generation at Yahoo! for our Engineering, and I wanted to touch base with you to see if you might be open to hearing from us about opportunities we have currently.
I came across your resume on the web and I wanted to check in with you.…
Okay Microsoft is trying to assimilate you, you just fired 10% of your engineers, your top people are leaving, but most of your broken, top-heavy corporate structure is intact… and you are trying to hire me for a low-end developer job at the same time.
[my reply after the jump]
I’m currently the software architect for a profitable startup. I don’t honestly feel joining a large takeover target which just fired some of my friends to work as a front end developer would be a intelligent career move at the time.
I appreciate the offer and best of luck to you and Yahoo. I am a big fan of your products and the friends I have that still have a job there. Say hi if you see me around the Valley.
