[clug] Verifying SPAM or Google Recruiting

They must be really scraping the bottom of the barrel now:
I just got an email from a Google recruiter asking me if I was
interested in working at Google.


I'm kind of tempted to string her along for a while, but I think I
will have to reply and say that she is 3 years too late.

I apologise if you've been getting what looks spam from Google
recruiters.  But hey: that's how I got hired.  (and for me, it was
perfect timing).

obligatory ad:

As Mikal said, Google is hiring heavily; but if you are seriously
interested, you may have a much better experience going via an
internal referral.  There are quite a few of us on here.
