Also love when they say I’m a great fit because of my experience at “xyz agency”, when I never worked at said place. If you’re messaging me over LinkedIn, it’s not too difficult to figure out where I’ve worked

Ugh. Sorry you had that experience. I’m not going to defend that, but I will say that recruiters talk to a lot of new people every day, and it can get confusing as heck when you’re dealing with the sheer volume of people we deal with. Again, it shouldn’t happen, but we are human after all. Well, most of us are 🤪
