I did once get a recruiter call for a great job in my area, that was the job I held just before the incumbent who was leaving took it over. "Why yes, Mr. Recruiter, I actually know quite a bit about that position. I held it for six years."

This, however, is nowhere NEAR as amusing as "Dancing With Mary Pat".

I once got a call from a recruiter telling me about a job I had just accepted the day before.

I must have gotten on some sort of "people who can teach things" list

Hi Mary Pat,
I have an opening for a Technical Instructor with Global Business Solutions in Groton, CT that I thought may interest you. If you'd like to proceed or learn more about this opportunity please follow the link below:
Technical Instructor
Global Business Solutions
The Technical Instructor supports the Navy's IT and Cyber training continuum for instructing students in the manner described in the course textbooks and materials, conducts practical exercises in a classroom/laboratory environment, conducts course instruction by applying adult learning principles, theories, and practices, and in some cases, uses a blended learning approach.

Provides classroom instruction to teach the students in the manner described in the Course Master Schedule (CMS), textbooks and materials;

Adapts instructional methods based on analysis of individual student and group needs;
Uses role-playing techniques and performance-based exercises to reinforce learning objectives.

DoD-issued Secret Security Clearance is required;Must have two (2) years of IT-related Instructor experience within the last four (4) years;
Just because I've taught several different things doesn't mean I can teach =any=thing

Also, I'm not going to try for the security clearance thing again, though, to be fair, the last time I tried, it was for Top Secret (or whatever it is you need to work for the NSA), and there was going to be some trouble with that.

Unfortunately I do not still have this email as it was on my previous work's email.

However, the email assumed that I was a high-end hiring manager in IT and they sent me an email asking if I'd like to look over some resumes. Then, maybe a week later or so (I hadn't responded) they sent me a group of resumes anyways.

This thread is for the wildly off-base job-related emails.

No, not the "I'm in Life, but it's a P&C position" kind of stuff. Just items that aren't even in the same universe as indicated by your resume.
....and this original guy sent me another email. I think I'm going to have to block him.
