Should I Respond to Recruiters’ Emails?

I know, there are way too many recruiters and most of them SPAM you.  Right?  Does this sound familiar…
“Hey (insert name), I noticed your profile and I have a great start-up that is looking for a great Java engineer just like you! If interested, AWESOME, email me back!”
Your Recruiting Buddy,
Rico Suave
TrustMe Recruiters LLC.
Sound familiar? Funny thing is – you are not even a Java Engineer.  You might be thinking, ‘Dude, read my profile at least before you SPAM me a job opening!’  You run to your Linked In profile and write, “If you are a Recruiter, just leave me alone!” An hour later, you get another email from a recruiter.  My software engineer friends tell me this same story over and over again.
What if the email from ‘Rico Suave’ recruiter really knew something about you & what you might be interested in, you might ask yourself, should I or shouldn’t I answer the email that could change my life? The answer is YES if the email contains the following information:
+knows something about you
+mentions the represented company and brief job description
+displays some tech IQ
+provides the link to the company and detailed job description
What if this job was referred to you by a friend? Even better!
Be open minded and make the comparison to where you are today. You are happy…you can be happier.  You are working on the coolest tech app…there is ‘better make the world a better place’ tech out there.  I have a great compensation package…well, there is always bigger and better.  JUST BE OPEN MINDED.
The best time to make a career move is when you are happy, challenged, having fun and earning good Benjamins.  Don’t wait until you need to look for a job or start getting that unsettled feeling. You are in the driver’s seat and the companies will want you even more because you are a Developer god and on top of your game.
Hey, after you chat…you can always still say No Thanks, but be smart and compare.

Oculus Rift CEO presented an offer letter to me to build their original teams & culture in 2012. I was the first one the team came to for this job. Oculus hired several engineers I recruited at Gakai as their core eng team. I pride myself & team on finding and illuminating hidden traits in untapped talent. When internal SWAT teams are unsuccessful, my firm gets called upon...hmm, perhaps that makes S.A. Traut Associates the SEAL Team to achieve success where all other efforts have come up short. Companies like Oculus Rift, Gaikai, PlayStation, Mulesoft, Nook Cloud have hired my untapped eng talent. Top talent builds great companies...not the opposite. I love creating start-ups from scratch and being able to move the needle every hour in a crazy fluid environment. See our new website please at www.satraut.com. We create winning teams/cultures w/ passive top 1-10%tTalent...called the "Super-Engaged" employee...that rare employee who goes above & beyond the call of duty & makes everyone around him/her better. I have always enjoyed tackling the most difficult challenges. When clients tell me that a current process does not work & many before me have failed or building a new company is required...I lick my chops at those opportunities to succeed where all others prior crashed & burned. Act as Chief People Officer & COO on-site for start-ups; building best in show teams; Culture Architect developing start-up collaborative cultures from scratch; surgical in global talent acquisition. With our creative hourly business model, clients pay no fees.
