They Pay People to Do This

Do corporate recruiters have to take an illiteracy test for their jobs? In the past couple of weeks I’ve received 4 pitch emails from HR ‘specialists’ claiming they’ve reviewed my resume at Monster and telling me that I would be a good fit with companies like Fidelity and Aflac. Seriously. Do they even bother to read? Or does some moronic search engine just flag my resume because the words ‘project’ and ‘management’ show up.
