Allan,

Hello! My name is Bob Ama, and I am a recruiter for Lazyass Recruiters. I found a copy of your resume...Your background and skills seem to match up well with a position I am working on right now for one of our clients.




I do not have much of a description to share with you (that's how I know your background and skills seem to match up well with it!) other than this:

Must have experience modeling in software that isn't even on your resume and experience pricing life insurance products even though you've clearly been in valuation your entire career.
Prior experience with products you've never had experience with preferred.

Got another message (actually, same word-for-word as the first one) last week. Could not ignore it. This guy is representing a company, badly. My response was something along the lines of - "hey, you work for a life company, and I'm a p&c actuary. Perhaps it's in your best interest to learn something about the positions you're recruiting for"
- I was nicer than that, but the point was, you're an idiot, go away.
not yet, but I fully expect another "I'm recruiting for a position at my life company, and your FCAS would be perfect."
