Here's a tip for you.
I know that recruiting is tough right now. Really tough. We're trying to hire a lot of people at Yahoo, and it's slow going. Everyone I talk to is having trouble finding good engineers.
So when you decide to cold-call people to find out if they're interesting in changing jobs (especially software engineering), you just might want to avoid doing to AT 6:50am!!!
How many software engineers do you know who are interested in having a discussion with a recruiter before 10am? This is particularly inexcusable when you're calling from the same time zone (based on the area code that caller id showed for you).
I'm still in shock, 15 minutes later.
