Recruiter Spam

Recruiter spam in tech is real. We don't talk about it often but it exists and it hurts. I have had so many experiences and I totally want to begin calling out and mentioning the names of my perceived offenders.

It definitely hurts good recruiters as much as anyone. Gives the whole industry a bad name.
