I have a perfect opportunity, now email your resume in Word - RF
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

months I get a flurry of these phone calls. Another round started this
They call up and say "I have a perfect opportunity for
you, can you send your resume to me in MS word format?".
"why do you need me to email my resume to you? You already have my resume,
otherwise you would not have called this unlisted number."
the person calling has quite a few technical questions, but they themselves
do not know AC from DC. They ask questions like "have you ever used
schematic capture?" "yes, I use orcad" "but have you ever used schematic
capture software?" is their reply.
1) How fast should I hang
up on these people?
2) Why do they come in groups? I won't get calls
like this for months and then I get 4 to 10 per week for a couple of
3) Why do they 'insist' on my resume by email in msword format?

I have been experiencing an increase in annoying headhunter
(redundant) contacts lately, too. I always write back or tell them on
the phone to remove me from their spam list. I also ask where they got
my resume, and most won't tell me, they just say they received it from
a colleague. I have no respect for headhunters for many reasons.
About a week ago, I asked a headhunter to send me a copy of my resume
that she had. It obviously came off the RF Cafe website, and right there
in bold letters was my message, "I am NOT looking for a new job. Please
DO NOT contact me."
Did I mention that I can't stand headhunters?

While many of you feel
irritated at these calls there are a bunch of persons looking for an
opportunity to work. They will be happy to receive calls from some of
these head hunters.
Usually in the field of RF design and the
high end PCB designs such scenario should not arise. But there do exist
a minority who would still be looking for a job.
