re: How To Scare Off Your Best IT People
Very funny how this article mentions HCL & recruitment notices. I got this recruitment notice (see below) from HCL a few months back. The typos and grammatical errors seem to go beyond the usual differences between Indian and American English. That, along with no mention of my name directly or how they received my email address led me & others to think it was a scam.
