METHODOLOGY: Plan to deal with the “noise” … …
… … take out the “trash”!
Here’s a classic example of non-traditional spam. I received three of these. So to me, that makes it spam. If I had only gotten one, I’d have been duped. SO here’s some points:
(1) It’s non-specific. It alludes to a “great job”, but doesn’t personalize what it is.
(2) It came in on the “right” email address. Addressed as “Ferdinand” *a sure tip off that the person has NEVER interacted with me.
(3) Taking the link brings you to a general jobsearch site with all the typical tools and advertisements and popups. So, the “jobs” are probably scraped off other sites.
Like with most spam, unsubscribe is a joke. Outlook’s spam filter is my choice.
That’s my take. YMMV FWIW
