I received the following piece of spam in my Inbox today, and I thought it was worth sharing. How come the pay is so low, for a position requiring experience with large data sets, in production mode? And why did they send that to me? Not only I'm a terrible fit, in addition I'm an entrepreneur making far more money.

By the way, C2C means corp-to-corp, it comes with no benefits and a terrible tax status (you must pay double for social security taxes). It's for 2 years though.
