I got an interesting email today, “we have received your resume and contact information”. Great! I’ve always wanted to work at…hang on a second, I don’t even have a resume prepared.
Unless the future me has time-traveled to the present and submitted a resume for me, I’m pretty confident it wasn’t me, although I don’t really remember much of this week. So if any of you have recently submitted a resume on my behalf along with my contact details, please let me know. I promise I won’t cause any physical harm.
Whilst I appreciate anyone’s effort and concern for my career path, it might be in my best interest to know what I’m applying for and what experiences, education and interests “I” claim to have, before a recruiter starts to think I have amnesia or some form of psychological issue. 😛
I wonder if there is a such thing as “resume fraud”?
Update: It appears this is part of the employee referral program, but it still doesn’t explain how someone could get my resume if I’ve never created a resume.
Update 2: Confusion all cleared up. And just as I suspected, the information submitted probably wasn’t as accurate or as formal as I would have written otherwise if I knew it was for a recruiter. And yes, it was from Microsoft.
