I’m wondering whether or not anyone actually ever responds to this sort of pitch:
We are a busy IT Recruiting Firm and require talented people to fill our postings.
Currently we are looking for people with these types of skills.
Database Developers (SQL or Oracle)
I see them regularly, but they seem pretty pointless. They might simply be spam email harvesting, or they might be legitimate requests from recruiters who have failed to grasp the idea that a pitch like that has far less appeal than a specific, actual job.
