Any ideas on how to sort out Phising from a real Google recruitment

Someone claiming to be "Soumita Sharma" <soumitas at google.com> sent me an
unsolicited email...

The only clue in the email headers that it isn't a crappy Phising
attempt is a host I wouldn't expect to see otherwise:

If the GOOG are going to continue this clumsy recruiting method, they
have to enter the real world:
 - their messages *will* get spoofed for phising and worse
 - without a way to verify the identity of the sender, anyone
    they actually would *want* to recruit wouldn't see their
    message or would bin it without reading...

I'd have expected a lot better of them...
