Unexpected Email Treasure #1 - Career Opportuntiy Comes Knock, Knock, Knocking via spam for like the Millionth Time

Career Opportunity Spam is making me crazy! Do people really recruit talent this way???

<------- Meet Anthony McWhorter
Anthony is a purveyor of great career opportunities via email

Below is a copy of the note sent to me personally by Anthony McWhorter, the CEO of Liberty National Life Insurance of Birmingham, Alabama. I was thrilled to learn that he wants me to interview with him. In fact, I am so important to his company he has set up an interview appointment prior to even discussing it with me. This is a job hunters dream come true. I am practically in the door before I even heard of the place! Except I get about 4-5 letters a week like this from the same company, as I am sure many of you do, except for those who have resorted to Spam filters, captcha, and other devious means to avoid these great opportunities.

So this made me wonder..just who the hell are Liberty National Life Insurance and their CEO? Details follow the email directly below:

"Anthony McWhorter" And as to the mystery that is Anthony McWhorter, the CEO sending unsolicited email for great career opportunities. Well, I looked him up and I is what popped up on ZoomInfo. Tony is a real dude! (with a couple of jobs, apparently) Hard to believe he has the time to send me recruitment letters. Information on Liberty (and my pal, Mr. McWhorter)
