is it just me, or is this just wrong?

Okay this has been bothering me for awhile, and I guess the first reason is it's unnecessary.

what is it? you may ask.

I keep getting solicitation for employment through avenues provided to me by my current employer, and frankly I don't like it.

First, let me say that as an experienced loan officer, I'm going to get solicited, as do most experienced mortgage lenders. Apparently there's just not enough of us who have made it through the tough times.

Now here's the part I don't like.

I work for the American Eagle Mortgage Co, and they provide me with certain normal type means of contact and communication. One is my corporate email     jbeckingham@aemc.cc

I use this for many things, especially applications and customer contact. I also use it for internal communications, as it is a secure means to communicate. The cost for this email, and the supporting systems is borne by guess who?

So why do headhunters, HR people, and other companies feel that it is okay to use this email to contact me to solicit me for employment.

Because I don't think it's okay. I feel that that behavior is inappropriate, and possibly unethical.

I'm really just not that hard to find, without going to an address provided by my employer, at my employers expense.

try this

google jay beckingham, or google yourself, if you never have

what pops up?

LinkedIn, Active Rain, Facebook, and many others

all of which have personal contact info, provided by me, at my expense, use these

do you want my first impression to be distasteful? do you want me to just think you & your company are lazy, that you'll take all the shortcuts?

because that's my first impression,

so please stop

now back to the original question

is it just me, or is this wrong?

(I think you know how I feel)

Jay, I think that the reason you get solicited at your work email is that it is not that apparent that it is a company email with the initials only rather than the entire name spelled out.  The second reason IMO is that these emails are not gathered by humans necessarily but by some email capturing program.  You may have to unsubscribe, unsubscribe, unsubscribe....

The excess of email just gets ridiculous, Jay!  Many of us are always contacted by others to interest us in their brokerages and it comes across in the same manner.  I agree with you.

Silvia,

if you're not doing (mortgage) business with me than you'd have to search to find this email. It's really not on anything else other than my business card or Company flyers, etc.

Dan,

If you are successful, and they really have an interest in you than finding appropriate means of contact really shouldn't be that difficult.

thanks
