A tech recruiter approached me with an opportunity, as they constantly do. I kindly thanked them and declined. They didn't read my mail and have now sent two follow-up mails...

Not going to be kind anymore. Fuck this type of headhunting and fuck your OKRs targeting solely on lead generation. You are the root cause why talent acquisition has a bad reputation.

Am I glad to use HEY for email so I can screen those people out with one click.

Good luck sending your follow-up inquiries straight to the trash.


By the way, if you want me to work for you, don't send a generic headhunter after me. I'm not interested in talking with a random person promising me the latest cool technologies and competitive salary.

I'd rather talk with actual developers and focus the discussion towards their engineering culture and what I can do to improve it.
