Eating while you are shitting

E-mail received.

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.

You got balls, Yahoo, I’ll give you that.
