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.

Disappointed. Sad!

I used to know how to cha-cha, shag, foxtrot, waltz, and swing.

But no tango.

And none of that is on my resume.

Hello, therealsylvos. I hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend and appreciate you connecting with me on Linkedin. I am reaching out to see if you were interested in part-time telemarketing work with the potential for full-time work. We specialize in appointment setting for the real estate industry and are looking for a telemarketer to help in this area. Our team gathers the leads and it would be your job to set up a listing appointment with our clients (mostly real estate agents).
I guess I should probably take my high school summer job off my linkedin at this point.

Gerard Bahamonde from Vector Security, Virginia Beach will be reaching out to you directly, but I wanted to share some details about the role ahead of time. (link)

Would you be interested in chatting with the team about the role?

Thanks!

Salary + bonus is $75k+. Here are a few more details about the role. (link)

Do you have any interest in a quick phone call? If it turns out it’s not a great fit or the timing’s not right, at least we’ll have made a potentially valuable connection.

Looks like they confused you with another actuary we both know.
