Recruitment emails from big companies are notoriously impersonal and packed to the gills with corporate marketing-speak.
So Paul Fenwick, a programmer in Melbourne, Australia, was surprised to receive a message last summer from “People Operations” at Google that sounded remarkably human, even funny.
According to tweets from Fenwick, the recruiter appealed to his listed interests on LinkedIn, including his love of Nyan Cat costumes and telling people they’re wrong.
Fenwick tweeted that, since recruiters on LinkedIn are often so lame, he had ignored the message until recently.
